‘The Oranges’ Trailer Takes Family Dysfunction Next Door

The Oranges
ATO Pictures

As we move out of summer and away from the big blockbusters, it’s time to embrace the simpler films, like ‘The Oranges.’ The official trailer for the quirky comedy has arrived to give us our first look at its exceptional family dysfunction.

‘The Oranges’ tells the story of the neighboring Ostroff and Walling families of West Orange, New Jersey. The families are incredibly close, but things get a little too close for comfort when Mr. Walling (Hugh Laurie) falls for the 24 year old Nina Ostroff (Leighton Meester), complicating the long-standing relationship between the two families.

The film has an amazing roster of cast members, including dysfunctional family vets Oliver Platt, Catherine Keener, Adam Brody, Allison Janney, and Alia Shawkat. It’s great to see Shawkat and Brody among such a strong group of actors, as they are both such woefully under-utilized talents in the acting world.

This trailer is our first look at the film, and it’s a great one. While it definitely has a generic family dramedy feel to it, there’s some great stuff in there, particularly with Shawkat and Janney, the latter of whom always shine when she gets to flex those comedic muscles. ‘The Oranges’ hits theaters this fall, but until then, get a little acquainted with the Ostroffs and the Wallings:
