C’mon C’mon is written and directed by Mike Mills, the Oscar-nominated filmmaker behind 2016’s 20th Century Women. The film is being led by Joaquin Phoenix (Her, Joker), and newcomer Woody Norman. Joining them are Gaby Hoffman, Molly Webster, Jaboukie Young-White, and Scoot McNairy.

“In the film, Phoenix stars as Johnny, a documentary filmmaker whose latest project has him interviewing children across the U.S. about the state of affairs in the world,” reads the synopsis (via Deadline). “He forges a tenuous but transformational relationship with his 8-year-old nephew Jesse (Woody Norman), who he ends up taking on his travels from Los Angeles to New York to New Orleans.”

He is currently in production for another A24 project titled Disappointment Blvd. with director Ari Aster.
