For Nancy Meyers fans, I know this week-old news is already old news, but the trailer for the new movie she’s produced (directed by her 29-year-old daughter Hallie Meyers-Shyer) is out and I’ve watched it 12 times at least…. pausing multiple times to take in the gorgeous set design Nancy’s famous for.
The film is Home Again and the leading lady is Reese Witherspoon. Other amaaaazing cast members (another Nancy thing) include Candace Bergen, Michael Sheen, Lake Bell, and more.
If you don’t know Nancy by name, you definitely know her fabulous movies: Something’s Gotta Give (Diane Keaton), It’s Complicated (Meryl Streep), The Intern (Anne Hathaway), The Holiday (Kate Winslet and Cameron Diaz), Father of the Bride (Diane Keaton again)… each one as good as the next and just as beautiful.
Which brings me to the newbie: Home Again. The plot centers around Reese’s character, a 40-year-old mother of two little girls whose ex?-husband is not in the picture… until he shows up later in the film. I’m not going to lie, I’m slightly confused by it all – basically Reese has a one-night fling with a hot young guy when she’s out celebrating her bday, and then lets him and his two aspiring film-maker buddies live at her house… but in one of the trailers, one of the other guy friends says he’s in love with her, different from the guy she’s hooking up with. Intruiging, no? Perhaps a love triangle. My favorite of all the plots!
But enough about that: let’s talk home decor.
