The first trailer for director Stuart Zicherman’s comedy A.C.O.D. has been released online. The title stands for “Adult Children of Divorce” and the film centers on a guy (Adam Scott) who has been caught in his parents’ (Richard Jenkins and Catherine O’Hara) ugly divorce for the past twenty years, and matters become even worse when his brother gets engaged. I caught the film at Sundance and it’s a really nice showcase for Adam Scott as a leading man, with a couple of scene-stealing performances by Jenkins and O’Hara to boot. In addition to being really funny, the pic also touches on some issues that should hit close to home for fellow A.C.O.D.’s.
