The first trailer for the indie comedy Goats has landed online. Directed by Christopher Neil, the film is based on the novel of the same name by Mark Jude Poirier and tells the coming of age story of a 15-year-old boy (Graham Phillips) who moves from his new age mother’s (Vera Farmiga) South-Western home to an East Coast prep school where his estranged father (Ty Burrell) was once a star student. The trailer isn’t particularly funny, and David Duchovy is quite strange as the goat-llving beau of Farmiga’s character. Matt caught the film earlier this year at Sundance and wasn’t a big fan (you can read his review here).
Hit the jump to watch the trailer. The film also stars Keri Russell, Ty Burell and Justin Kirk. Goats opens on August 10th.
