Starz Digital has released the trailer and poster for My Blind Brother. The upcoming romantic comedy stars Adam Scott as a blind athlete who relies on his brother (Nick Kroll), but their sibling rivalry reaches new heights when they both fall for the same woman (Jenny Slate).
On the one hand, this has a great cast that pretty much succeeds no matter what they do. The opportunity to see Scott, Kroll, and Slate bounce off each other seems like money in the bank, and I’m happy to see these actors, along with co-star Zoe Kazan, in just about anything. Judging from the trailer, this could be a cute movie with just enough of an edge that it doesn’t fall into empty sentiment or situations that would necessitate a laughtrack.
Check out the My Blind Brother trailer and poster below. The film hits theaters, OnDemand, and iTunes on September 23rd.
Here’s the official synopsis for My Blind Brother:
Nick Kroll, Adam Scott, and Jenny Slate star in this hilarious comedy that takes sibling rivalry to new heights. Bill (Kroll, Adult Beginners, Date Night) has always lived in the shadow of his overachieving brother Robbie (Scott,“Parks & Recreation”, The Overnight, Step Brothers), an arrogant athlete and local celebrity who happens to be blind. After years of thanklessly helping Robbie achieve one goal after another, Bill finally catches a break when he finds a connection with the charming Rose (Slate, Obvious Child, Zootopia), who is dealing with her own crisis. But when Rose starts dating Robbie, Bill must decide if he can finally put his own happiness over his brother’s and compete for the ultimate prize. Also starring Zoe Kazan (What If, Our Brand is Crisis).
