Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner recently took some time out to write and direct a little film with some big stars. Zach Galifianakis, Owen Wilson, and Amy Poehler star in Are You Here, which is about a somewhat strange guy (Galifianakis) who travels home for his father's funeral. He brings along his womanizing weatherman friend (Wilson) and ends up needing him more than ever when a legal battle breaks out after the will is read and his sister (Poehler) isn't too happy about being left with nothing. Personally I'm curious to see how Weiner, who we know is really talented with dramatic material, handles all these funny people. The movie opened to mixed reviews at the Toronto International Film Festival last year, and it's set for an Aug. 22 release. Take a look, and let me know what you think!
