What if Mad Men’s creator, Matthew Weiner, wrote and directed a comedy film set in the present-day and cast Zach Galifianakis, Amy Poehler and Owen Wilson as his leads?
Well, that did happen!
You Are Here. No. The name of Weiner’s big-screen directorial debut is Are You Here, and it debuted last year at the Toronto Film Festival. Now it’s coming to a theater or TV screen near you this summer — Millennium Entertainment is releasing Are You Here on Aug. 22, 2014, in theaters and VOD.
The film finds Ben Baker (Galifianakis) inheriting his father’s fortune, which upsets his sister (Poehler) enough to prompt a court battle. Owen Wilson plays Steve Dallas, the local TV weatherman who is Baker’s friend. Also co-starring Laura Ramsey and Jenna Fischer.
