Take Me Home movie sceneThe husband-and-wife team of Sam Jaeger and Amber Jaeger star in the 2011 independent romantic comedy film Take Me Home.

With no job prospects and a landlord who’s just thrown all his belongings out into the hallway, Thom (Sam Jaeger, TV’s Parenthood) must turn to his recurring last resort: driving his illegal taxicab around the streets of New York. Fortunately for him, Claire Barrow (Amber Jaeger, Loveless in Los Angeles) isn’t having a good day, either, what with her husband flirting with his new secretary and then discovering that her estranged father has suffered a heart attack in California. In frenzy, Claire runs out into the night and hails what she assumes to be a cab. What she gets instead … is Thom. On a whim, Claire decides to pay Thom to drive her out to California. With nothing in New York to call his own, he reluctantly agrees. But are Thom or Claire prepared for what their cross-country road trip has in store for them?

Written, directed and co-produced by star Sam Jaeger, Take Me Home was shot on location in thirteen different states by an eleven person crew who set out in an RV from New York City to capture the backdrop of the American landscape.

Co-stars include Victor Garber (The Entitled), Cristine Rose (TV’s Heroes), Lin Shaye (American Cowslip) and Bree Turner (TV’s Grimm).

Take Me Home was screened at a handful of U.S. film festivals in 2011 before playing a limited run in a couple of Stateside theaters in March, 2012 to generally positive reviews.
