Saturday Night Live favorite alums Bill Hader and Kristen Wiig reunited to film The Skeleton Twins, which earned widespread praise at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year. Roadside Attractions is gearing up to release the film and just put out a trailer.
The film itself is about a reunion, as Hader and Wiig play siblings who haven’t spoken to each other for 10 years. They come together and try to built up their relationship again, but learn about their differences and run into other issues. If the trailer is any indication, the film balances a sense of humor with the heart one expects from a family reunion story.
The Skeleton Twins was directed by Craig Johnson, who co-wrote the screenplay with Mark Heyman. According to Variety, the film won the Waldo Salt screenwriting award at Sundance. It was produced by Mark Duplass.
Luke Wilson stars as Wiig’s husband, while Ty Burrell plays Hader’s former lover. Joanna Gleason, Kathleen Rose Perkins and Adriane Lenox also star.
The Skeleton Twins opens on Sept. 19.
