After a promising debut with For A Good Time Call, we haven’t heard much from Lauren Miller, but this is all about to change. Miller is making her directorial debuts with the daddy/daughter dramedy Like Father. Below is the new trailer and official synopsis:
When a workaholic young executive (Kristen Bell) is left at the altar, she ends up on her Caribbean honeymoon cruise with the last person she ever expected: her estranged and equally workaholic father (Kelsey Grammer). The two depart as strangers, but over the course of a few adventures, a couple of umbrella-clad cocktails and a whole lot of soul-searching, they return with a renewed appreciation for family and life.
The trailer is hitting all the right notes for us. It looks as Miller’s wit and style are still intact. Kristen Bell and Kelsey Grammer look to be well matched here and Seth Rogen playing a bit against type may just be all kinds of cute. Will this be a family reunion for the ages? We’ll have to see when the movie hits Netflix on August 3rd.
