The Details

The Details

Marriage…infidelity…suburban dreams…extortion…and one some very ravenous raccoons. “The Details,” the new comedy written and directed by Jacob Estes, tackles all of these issues and more.

The Details

Jeff and Nealy Lang (Tobey Maguire and Elizabeth Banks) are an environmentally-concious couple who seem to have it all. After 10 years of marriage they have a newly renovated home in the suburbs, a child, and a Prius. A successful obstetrician with his beautiful wife. Beneath the surface, though, their marriage is on the rocks and their struggling.

The Details

Against this backdrop, the Langs embark on a landscaping project. Jeff has decided that he wants his home to have a perfectly manicured backyard. What he gets, however, is a bunch of raccoons that repeatedly burrow under the sod to get to the tasty worms that lay beneath. In response, Jeff becomes obsessed with eradicating the raccoons – and his efforts initiate an incredible chain reaction of increasingly crazy plans. As Estes explains, “‘The Details’ is about how adults can act like children, or like silly little animals, driven by impulses that are, or can be, out of their control.”

“The Details” also stars Ray Liotta, Dennis Haysbert, Anna Friel, Laura Linney and Sam Trammell. The film is scheduled for a limited release on November 2, 2012 by RADiUS-TWC.
