The first trailer and poster for director Kyle Patrick Alvarez’s adaptation of the David Sedaris short story C.O.G. have been released online. The autobiographical comedy stars Jonathan Groff (Glee) as a young man who plans a summer trip in the Northwest with his friend working on a farm, only to have his friend bail on him. The pic looks to sufficiently capture Sedaris’ dry humor, and the talented Groff gets the chance to lead a film of his own. The ensemble cast is impressive as well, and overall C.O.G. looks to be a pretty charming small-town story told through Sedaris’ unique point of view.
Hit the jump to check out the trailer and poster. The film also stars Troian Bellisario, Corey Stoll, Denis O’Hare, and Casey Wilson. C.O.G. will be available on iTunes and in theaters on September 20th.
