For some reason, this trailer made me laugh. It’s directed by Ryan Murphy who also does Nip/Tuck. It has a somewhat interesting cast which includes Annette Bening, Gwyneth Paltrow, Jill Clayburgh, Brian Cox, Joseph Fiennes, Evan Rachel Wood and Alec Baldwin and an interesting plot.
Young Augusten Burroughs (Cross) absorbs experiences that could make for a shocking memoir: the son of an alcoholic father (Baldwin) and an unstable mother (Bening), he’s handed off to his mother’s therapist, Dr. Finch (Cox), and spends his adolescent years as a member of Finch’s bizarre extended family.
I don’t know if I’d necessarily pay money to watch it, but it looks like it has some potential.
