Celebrate National Brother’s Day with a new Book of Henry clip
To celebrate National Brother’s Day, Focus Features has debuted a whimsical new clip from The Book of Henry, the latest from director Colin Trevorrow (Jurassic World, Safety Not Guaranteed). Check out the Book of Henry clip below!
Sometimes things are not always what they seem, especially in the small suburban town where the Carpenter family lives. Single suburban mother Susan Carpenter (Naomi Watts) works as a waitress at a diner, alongside feisty family friend Sheila (Sarah Silverman). Her younger son Peter (Jacob Tremblay) is a playful 8-year-old. Taking care of everyone and everything in his own unique way is Susan’s older son Henry (Jaeden Lieberher), age 12, whose creativity is without limits. Protector to his adoring younger brother and tireless supporter of his often self-doubting mother – and, through investments, of the family as a whole – Henry blazes through the days like a comet. Susan discovers that the family next door, which includes Henry’s kind classmate, 12-year-old Christina (Maddie Ziegler), has a dangerous secret – and that Henry has devised a surprising plan to help. As his brainstormed rescue plan for Christina takes shape in thrilling ways, Susan finds herself at the center of it.
The original screenplay for The Book of Henry is by acclaimed novelist Gregg Hurwitz. The Focus Features release is being produced by Sidney Kimmel Entertainment’s (SKE) Sidney Kimmel and Carla Hacken, and by Double Nickel Entertainment’s Jenette Kahn and Adam Richman. Executive-producing are Sue Baden-Powell and SKE’s John Penotti.
The Book of Henry opens in theaters on June 16.
