Pepper Potts and Bruce Banner finally get it…Wait. Sorry. To pigeonhole these two and then to suggest that they’re pigeon-holing each other…where are my manners?
Here’s the trailer for Thanks For Sharing, a comedy-drama about falling in love and sex addiction. Written and directed by Stuart Blumberg (The Kids Are All Right, The Girl Next Door), this film boasts an impressive cast that will have no trouble portraying the empathy, tragedy and humour inherent to the relationships that are the focus of the story. Adam (Ruffalo) is an environmental consultant who, after becoming five years sober from sex addiction, begins to dip his toes back into the dating pool where he meets the equally-troubled Phoebe (Paltrow). While these two remain in the story’s foreground, I’m also interested to see how the relationship between Josh Gad and Alecia Moore (aka. Pink) pan out. In addition to these four, Tim Robbins, Joely Richardson and Patrick Fugit round out the cast list.
And if you have any reservations about Moore’s performance in her feature film debut, Kevin Jagernauth from IndieWire shares a similar consensus with many other critics: “[Pink] is a truly pleasant surprise in her first major screen outing (not counting animated gigs), with her first scene in the film among one of the best in ‘Sharing’ at large.”
Thanks for Sharing opens September 20th.
Three unlikely friends—Adam (Mark Ruffalo), Mike (Tim Robbins) and Neil (Josh Gad)—all come from very different backgrounds. Adam is a young man desperate to win the heart of a beautiful woman (Gwyneth Paltrow), Mike is a sponsor for addicts but he’s debilitated by his own need to be needed by others and Neil is a young doctor whose career suffers because of his repeated lying.
Despite their differences, the three men share one big commonality: they’re all undergoing treatment to recover from their sex addiction so that for the first time in their lives, they can begin to form real, meaningful relationships.
