The Oranges movie scene

Leighton Meester and Hugh Laurie get a fresh squeeze out of suburbia in The Oranges.

Catherine Keener (Please Give), Leighton Meester (Country Strong) and Hugh Laurie (TV’s House) star in the 2011 comedy The Oranges, which ponders the oft-asked cinematic question, “What does it take to be truly happy.”

Two friendly suburban New Jersey families—The Ostroffs and The Wallings—begin to go at it when the Ostroffs’ rebellious daughter Nina (Meester) returns home for the holidays after a five-year absence and starts an adulterous affair with long-time family friend David Walling (Laurie). The outrageous scandal reaches hilarious new heights during the holidays and makes these neighbors tear apart more than just wrapping paper…!

Directed by Julian Farino, the R-rated movie also features Adam Brody (Damsels in Distress), Allison Janney (The Help) and Oliver Platt (Please Give).

Unenthusiastically received by critics upon its limited release to theaters in October, 2012 the movie rang up a tepid $370,000 at the box office.

Still, the cast has us a little curious about this one…

  • Opening Doors: Inside the Oranges
  • Juicy Secrets: Behind the Scenes of The Oranges
