If you don’t feel like going to the movies, and you’re in the mood for a comedy film that also looks like it could also bring in a healthy dose of depressing middle-aged fare, then you can likely do much worse than the film Wine Country, from director Amy Poehler. While she’s mostly known for her acting, this movie marks her highest profile feature to date, and it looks like it could be pretty funny.
In some ways, based on the trailer, it looks like a bit of a Judd Apatow movie. There will be tons of swearing and shenanigans, but at the end of the day, there’s a solid chance there’ll be a heavy help of heart along the way. In the case of this movie, you have a group of women dealing with getting older. The talent in front of the camera is great, so hopefully, the script will help carry it the whole movie.
Below is the official synopsis to Wine Country:
“In honor of Rebecca’s (Rachel Dratch) 50th birthday, Abby (Amy Poehler) plans a scenic Napa getaway with their best, longtime friends. Workaholic Catherine (Ana Gasteyer), post-op Val (Paula Pell), homebody Jenny (Emily Spivey), and weary mom Naomi (Maya Rudolph) are equally sold on the chance to relax and reconnect. Yet as the alcohol flows, real world uncertainties intrude on the punchlines and gossip, and the women begin questioning their friendships and futures. A hilarious and heartfelt comedy directed by Amy Poehler, Wine Country co-stars Tina Fey, Jason Schwartzman and Cherry Jones.”
Wine Country hits Netflix on May 10, 2019.
