John Krasinski needs to work out some family issues in the trailer for "The Hollars," a dysfunctional-family dramedy that marks Krasinski's second outing as a director.

The film, also starring Margo Martindale, Richard Jenkins, Anna Kendrick, and Mary Elizabeth Winstead, follows an indecisive and somewhat insecure cartoonist (Krasinski) who moves back to his hometown when his mother (Martindale) is hospitalized. He soon finds himself emotionally torn between his pregnant girlfriend (Kendrick) and his former flame (Winstead).

Sharlto Copley, Randall Park, Charlie Day, and Josh Groban round out the cast.

"The Hollars," which premiered at Sundance this year, comes from a script written by filmmaker James C. Strouse (People Places Things, The Winning Season). The film will be released in select theaters on August 26th.

synopsis:
John Hollar, a struggling NYC artist is forced to navigate the small middle-American town he left behind when news of his mother's illness brings him home. Back in the house he grew up in, John is immediately swept up in the problems of his dysfunctional family, high school rival, and an over-eager ex-girlfriend as he faces impending fatherhood with his girlfriend in New York. From a script by Jim Strouse that is at turns hilarious and heartbreaking, John Krasinski's second directing feature is a poignant look at the bonds of family and friendship.
