Netflix releases trailer for Nicole Holofcener’s The Land of Steady Habits
James R | On 25, Aug 2018
Nicole Holofcener is heading to Netflix this September with her new film, The Land of Steady Habits.
The drama, from the director of the underrated Enough Said and Friends with Money, is based on the 2014 novel of the same name by Ted Thompson. While Holofcener’s name behind the camera is enough to put this on anyone’s Netflix watchlist, the cast in front of the camera is equally impressive: the film stars Ben Mendelsohn, alongside Connie Britton, Elizabeth Marvel, Thomas Mann and Bill Camp.
Mendelsohn plays Anders Hill, long ensconced in “the land of steady habits”- the affluent hamlets of Connecticut that dot the commuter rail line. Now, he is finally ready to reap the rewards of a sensible life. Into his mid 50s and newly retired, his grown son’s college tuitions paid in full, Anders decides he’s had enough of steady habits: he leaves his wife (Edie Falco), buys a condo, and waits for freedom to transform him. Stripped of the comforts of his previous identity, Anders embarks on a clumsy, and heartbreaking journey to reconcile his past with his present.
The film premieres on Netflix on Friday 14th September. Here’s the trailer – or, for more on what’s coming soon to Netflix UK in September, click here.
The Land of Steady Habits is available to watch on Netflix UK, as part of an £9.99 monthly subscription.
