The Year of Getting to Know Us Movie Trailer

The Year of Getting to Know Us Movie Trailer

Patrick Sisam’s The Year of Getting to Know Us premieres at Sundance, but an early trailer (with a different title – Rocket) has popped up online.

Jimmy Falon stars in what Sundance describes as a “darkly comic exploration of the classic dysfunctional-family dynamic” and “a quirky exploration of how the people in our lives make us who we are.” Christopher Rocket escaped his sheltered life as the only child of a golf-obsessed father and eccentric mother in Florida to become a commitment-phobic successful freelance writer in New York. The story intercuts between Rocket’s “less-than-normal ’70s childhood and present-day adulthood” as Christopher returns home to reconnect with his estranged comatose father. Lucy Liu, Sharon Stone, Tom Arnold, and Illeana Douglas co-star.

The premise sounds strong, and Falon has shown hints of a promising dramatic turn in the past (Almost Famous), although this trailer is trying to market the film as a mainstream feel good movie, which it clearly isnt. Watch the trailer after the jump.
