Trailer: The Skeleton Twins
SNL-alums Kristen Wiig and Bill Hader confront harsh realities in the upcoming release from Roadside Attractions The Skeleton Twins. Writer/director Craig Johnson (previously of True Adolescents) won the Walt Salt Screenwriting Award along with his co-writer Mark Heyman (Black Swan) at this year’s Sundance Film Festival for The Skeleton Twins, which received many positive notices including one here at Way Too Indie.
In this dramatic comedy, Hader and Wiig play siblings living with one another after failed suicide attempts. Wiig shows anxiety as the wife of Luke Wilson, who happily announces to her brother that, “We’re trying to get pregnant,” because ‘phrasing it with “we” makes it not sexist.’ Hader, an unsuccessful gay actor, struggles with living in a small town and lip-synchs with his sister to Starship’s “Nothing Going to Stop Us Now.”
The Skeleton Twins will be in theaters on September 19th, watch the trailer below:
