We’ve kept an eye on Lola Kirke since she charmed her way through Mistress America, her breakthrough role; since that 2015 gem, she’s enchanted us on Mozart in the Jungle , amazed us in the woefully underseen AWOL , and startled us in the forthcoming Gemini . Point is, when she’s in a new movie, it has our attention, so Active Adults has our attention.
The new comedy/drama, directed by Aaron Fisher-Cohen, takes the “crushed millenials move back home” trope one step further, as frustrated young NYC couple Malcolm and Lily decide to try out a “new way of living” with Malcolm’s grandparents in a New Jersey “active adult” community. (Don’t call it a retirement home.) Kirke and Jonathan Rosen star as the youngsters; the stellar supporting cast includes Rosie Perez, Ellen Barken, Scott Cohen, and Uncle Junior himself, Dominic Chianese.
And we’re thrilled to debut the trailer, right here:
Active Adults is available on digital and VOD this Tuesday, November 21.
