Drama comedy "A.C.O.D.", which stands for Adult Children of Divorce, has released its first trailer via Yahoo! Movies. As suggested by the title, the movie will see the impacts of splitting up on the grown-up kids through the life of a successful career man named Carter, played by "Leap Year" actor Adam Scott.
Introduced as the on-screen bitterly divorced parents of Scott are Richard Jenkins and Catherine O'Hara, both of whom are clearly not on very good terms as seen in the video. In the story, Carter is forced to reunite them and their new spouses as his younger brother (Clark Duke) marries his girlfriend of four months.
Things will be far more chaotic for Carter as he has his own personal problem. Already dating Lauren (Mary Elizabeth Winstead), he will soon find himself attracted to the tattooed Michelle (Jessica Alba). It is also revealed in the trailer that the one he thought was his therapist turns out to be a researcher who has him as part of her study.
Set for limited release on October 4, "A.C.O.D." also stars Amy Poehler and Jane Lynch. It is the directorial debut of Stuart Zicherman, who co-created ABC's series "Six Degrees". The Film Arcade and Paramount picked up the movie in April.
"A.C.O.D. is one of the funniest Sundance films we've seen ... Stu and his incredible cast have shown us that divorce hurts until you laugh," said The Film Arcade partners in a statement.
