Father Figures

446

Kyle and Peter are fraternal twins who grew up without their father. When they discover that their mother lied about his death, they set out on a road trip of a lifetime to try to track him down.

Kyle (Owen Wilson) and Peter (Ed Helms) have left their days of soul-searching behind them. Adults who are content with who they are, they travel together to their mother’s wedding to celebrate the woman who raised them singlehandedly after the death of their father.

But they soon find out that what they’ve been led to believe isn’t strictly true…

The fraternal twins learn that their mother had lied to them for their entire lives – their father isn’t dead, and she doesn’t know who he is. This realisation shakes them both to the core, throwing everything they thought they knew into question.

Cue the soul-searching.

They decide to set out on a road trip, taking on the awkward task of tracking down their mother’s past lovers in the hope of finding the one who was responsible for their conception. And what they discover along the way is even more bizarre than their mission itself.

As Kyle and Peter search for the person they could call ‘dad’, they end up finding out more than they bargained for about a whole host of other men – including each other.

In his directorial debut, Lawrence Sher, famed cinematographer for The Hangover franchise, assembles a star-studded comedy cast, including Owen Wilson (Midnight in Paris), Ed Helms (We’re the Millers), Glenn Close (The Girl with All the Gifts) and J. K. Simmons (Whiplash).
