A struggling NYC artist, John Krasinski, is forced to return to the small middle-American town he left behind after learning about his mother’s (Margo Martindale, TV’s Justified) illness. Back in the house he grew up in, John is immediately swept up in the problems of his dysfunctional family, high school rival, and an over-eager ex-girlfriend as he faces impending fatherhood with his NYC girlfriend (Anna Kendrick, The Last Five Years).

Written by Jim Strouse, the PG-13 movie’s cast also includes Sharlto Copley (Chappie), Charlie Day (Pacific Rim) and Richard Jenkins (Let Me In).

The film was not received all that well by the critics upon its limited theatrical release in September, 2016, garnering a 43% favorable rating at Rotten Tomatoes based on 81 published reviews.

Bonus materials on the Blu-ray, DVD & digital versions of The Hollars include commentary with John Krasinski and Margo Martindale and three behind-the-scenes featurettes (one of which is a Q&A filmed at the LA Film Festival).
