Ed Helms is looking forward to fatherhood in the Bleecker Street comedy Together Together, which hits select theaters today. Also starring Patti Harrison, Tig Notaro and Julio Torres, the film was written and directed by Nikole Beckwith.
In the pic, a young loner Anna (Harrison) is hired as the surrogate for Matt (Helms), a single man in his 40s. The two strangers come to realize this unexpected relationship will quickly challenge their perceptions of connection, boundaries, and the particulars of love.
Together Together had its world premiere at this year’s Sundance Film Festival. Check out the trailer below.
Also in limited theaters today is The Space Between, the coming-of-age story starring Julia Goldani Telles, William Fichtner, Jackson White, Paris Jackson, Andy Daley, and Golden Globe-winning actor Kelsey Grammer.
The film marks the directorial debut from Dallas Buyers Club producer Rachel Winter. Set during the 90s LA music scene, the plot follows eccentric has-been rock musician, Micky Adams (Grammer), who loses his grip on reality all while his record label is looking to drop him and his newly created “unique” albums. In hopes of breaking out of the record-label mailroom, a young Charlie Porter (White) is tasked with traveling to the musician’s bizarre home and forcing Micky out of his contract. Micky realizes Charlie could be the key to an artistic breakthrough, and the pair’s unlikely friendship grows.
Following its theatrical run, the film will be available on digital platforms on June 15. See the trailer below.
