The quirky comedy about family life in suburbia has been done many times before, but count us in as being intrigued by the first trailer for “The Oranges”, which features a winning cast and some genuinely funny moments. Leighton Meester plays Nina, a young woman who returns home to her family in West Orange, FL, where she proceeds to turn their lives and the lives of the family of their best friends upside down when she begins seeing her father Terry’s (Oliver Platt) best friend David (Hugh Laurie). Needles to say, her mom Carol (Allison Janney), David’s ex-wife Paige (Catherine Keener) and their two kids Vanessa (Alia Shawkat) and Toby (Adam Brody) are a bit put-off by the idea.
The Julian Farino-directed dramedy premiered last year at the Toronto International Film Festival and, more than a year later, will finally be released on October 5th, 2012. The first trailer can be viewed below.
