Three Younger Men Move In With Reese Witherspoon In Romantic Comedy ‘Home Again’ Coming to KCET’s Cinema Series August 22

Hollywood’s typical May-December love story gets flipped on its head in this modern romantic comedy starring Oscar® winner Reese Witherspoon as a recently separated mother of two who makes a life changing decision when on her 40th birthday she invites three aspiring young filmmakers (Pico Alexander, Nat Wolff and Jon Rudnitsky) who need a place to live to move in with her. As a result of her actions, and the return of her estranged husband (Michael Sheen), unexpected results ensue. Making her directorial debut, Writer/Director Hallie Meyers-Shyer (daughter of Producer Nancy Meyers) will join KCET Cinema Series and Must See Movies host Pete Hammond for a Q&A immediately following the screening. “Home Again” will be released in theatres by Open Road Films on September 8.

Despite the dewy backdrop and attractive male suitors, the romantic fling isn’t the crux of the story. “That’s what makes it a modern romantic comedy,” says Witherspoon. “It’s not about a woman finding love; it’s about a woman finding the best version of herself — and that’s very modern.”
