It’s been four long years for those of us waiting for Lake Bell’s followup to her debut comedy In A World…. But now we finally have our first look at the writer/director/actor’s follow up, I Do… Until I Don’t.
Bell heads up an ensemble as one half of three couples whose lives and marriages are upset by a filmmaker’s suggestion that maybe marriage vows should be like a contract and have an option to renew every seven years. Ed Helms, Mary Steenburgen, Paul Reiser, Wyatt Cenac, Amber Heard and Dolly Wells round out the cast.
Here’s the official synopsis –
In Vero Beach, Florida, a trio of couples at various points in their relationships become the subjects of a film about marriage being an antiquated idea that needs a reboot: Why not turn marriage into a seven-year deal with an option to renew? For Alice and Noah (Lake Bell, Ed Helms), more than a hint of boredom is setting in as they approach their first decade together and the prospect of parenthood. Meanwhile, Alice’s funky sister Fanny (Amber Heard) is sure her “open marriage” to Zander (Wyatt Cenac) is the key to their free-spirited happiness. And then there’s Cybil and Harvey (Mary Steenburgen, Paul Reiser), a pair of empty-nesters wondering what the next stage will be. As the manipulative filmmaker (Dolly Wells) attempts to show how marriage is outmoded, the couples she interviews discover the “do’s” and “don’t’s” in their own relationships.
I Do… Until I Don’t opens in theaters on September 1, 2017.
