Who didn’t love the tongue-tied, angst-y teenaged Dwayne Hoover from Little Miss Sunshine? Well, this April, Paul Dano is hitting the big screen again with what looks to be another quirky, off-kilter comedy costarring John Goodman and, our favorite, Zooey Deschanel.
Here’s the story, morning glory…
Mattress salesman, Brian Weathersby (Dano) has plans to adopt a chinese baby, but as Harriet “Happy” Lolly (Deschanel) comes into the picture and falls asleep on a bed in his store one day, things get complicated. The two fall for each other but must find a way to deal with each other’s wacky families (Happy’s father, Al Lolly (Goodman))in order to be together.
Looks like the soundtrack will be featuring some Animal Collective. Promising…
Will it be this year’s Juno? It may be too soon to say. We’ll just have to wait until May 22nd, when Gigantic opens at select theatres around the Twin Cities (or April 3rd for NY and April 10th for Chicago).
Watch the trailer, especially for John Goodman’s glasses, they’re freakin’ rad.
