There has not been a great deal of information about the forthcoming movie The Playroom, which stars John Hawkes and Molly Parker, although we have seen a poster and a few production stills. Now, a new trailer for The Playroom has been released, showing us the lead characters in action.
The synopsis for The Playroom is as follows:
Set in the suburbs during the 1970s, the story unfolds like a dream wrapped around a family drama, one in which all members of the Cantwell family struggle to find their way in a rapidly changing world. Maggie (newcomer Olivia Harris) is a vulnerable yet tempestuous teenager who acts as big sister and surrogate mother to her three younger siblings. Upstairs in the attic she tells them fantastical stories, but only to mask what is happening downstairs. As her hard-drinking parents, Martin and Donna (Hawkes and Parker), entertain guests, Maggie grapples with their flawed choices and is thrust into a world she might not be ready for.
As well as starring John Hawkes and Molly Parker, The Playroom also stars Olivia Harris and Cody Linley. The Playroom has been written by Gretchen Dyer and is directed by Julia Dyer and is set for a limited release in the US on February 8, but for now, check out The Playbook trailer, below.
