Kevin Spacey stars as a Hollywood's top celebrity shrink who can barely deal with his own problems in the Jonas Pate-directed drama.
What if the one person who is counted by others to hold them together is barely holding it together himself? In a brand new trailer of "Shrink" outed via Apple, Henry Carter portrayed by Academy Award-winning Kevin Spacey is introduced as the sought-after Hollywood psychiatrist, whose clients include a once-famous actress, an insecure young writer and a comically obsessive-compulsive superagent.
But, having a list of A-list clients doesn't mean that he is in a good place. Unable to cope with a recent personal tragedy, he turns into a pothead with no concern for his appearance. As a sense of inability to help his patients creeps into his mind, he is asked to take on his first pro-bono case. Now, he has to deal with the real-life troubles of a troubled teenage girl who loves the world of movies he has become so jaded by.
Premiered at the 2009 Sundance Film Festival, "Shrink" was filmed under the direction of Jonas Pate using a script written by Thomas Moffett. It stars Kevin Spacey and is supported by Saffron Burrows, Mark Webber, Dallas Roberts and Keke Palmer among many others. It is expected to hit theaters across the U.S. some time this year.
