The trailer for writer-director Will Slocombe’s new Thanksgiving-themed indie comedy, Cold Turkey, is now online. Check it out in the player below, courtesy of Yahoo! Movies.
Starring Peter Bogdanovich, Cheryl Hines, Alicia Witt, Ashton Holmes, Sonya Walger and Amy Ferguson, Cold Turkey opens in Los Angeles on November 15 and in New York November 22.
Set in present-day Pasadena, the film centers on the eccentric Turner clan, an upper-class family torn apart by secrets revealed over a Thanksgiving weekend. Patriarch Poppy (Bogdanovich) has invited his black sheep daughter Nina (Witt) home for the holiday – her first visit in 15 years. Nina immediately clashes with stepmother Deborah (Hines), and competes with her siblings (Holmes and Walger) for Poppy’s affection – and money. Over three days, the family gradually disintegrates over who will get Poppy’s money – only to discover he’s broke.
