For all our foreign-movie fancies, we love the occasional Hollywood ‘rom com’ at hush. We’re also huge fans of Reese Witherspoon who plays Alice in Home Again, a recently separated, 40-year-old mother of two who’s starting over.
After the separation from her husband (played by Michael Sheen), Alice decides to move back to her hometown of Los Angeles with her two young daughters, and struggles to get her fledgling design career off the ground whilst also navigating the family’s new life. During a night out on her 40th birthday, Alice meets three young, charismatic filmmakers who she decides to take in while they try their hand in Hollywood and, an unconventional family dynamic emerges…
Produced by Nancy Meyers (The Intern, It’s Complicated, What Women Want, The Holiday) and written and directed by her daughter Hallie Meyers-Shyer, Home Again is a story of love, friendship, and the families we create. And one very big life lesson: starting over is not for beginners.
