Mayim Bialik’s feature directorial debut, As They Made Us, now has a trailer ahead of its theatrical and VOD release in April.
Bialak writes and directs the film, which she also wrote following the death of her father. The film stars Dianna Agron and Simon Helberg, with Candice Bergen, Dustin Hoffman, Justin Chu Cary, Charlie Weber, and Julian Gant.
The film features an all-star cast while revealing wildly relatable family’s tumultuous and bittersweet, yet often hilarious, journey to repair their complex relationships. Among the things that the film does is illustrate the redemptive nature of a family’s love as they navigate death, mental illness, trauma, and familial responsibility.
As They Made Us follows Abigail (Agron), a divorced mother of two, who is struggling to find sanity in her dysfunctional family as she attempts to cultivate new love. Her father, Eugene (Hoffman), has a degenerative condition that he and his wife, Barbara (Bergen), refuse to accept. Her brother Nathan (Helberg) has been estranged from the family for decades. A self-appointed fixer, Abigail attempts to mend her complicated family before it’s too late.
Here’s a look at the newly released trailer:
