Sigourney Weaver and Kevin Kline Reunite in Trailer for 'The Good House' About Rekindled Romance

·2 min read

Sigourney Weaver plays a woman finding a new chance at love in her latest film.

In the new romance The Good House, the Oscar nominee, 72, stars as Hildy Good, a newly single New England realtor whose family worries about her drinking habits. Per the official synopsis, Hildy's "compartmentalized life begins to unravel as she rekindles a romance with her old high school flame Frank Getchell," played by Kevin Kline, 74.

She then "becomes dangerously entwined in one person's reckless behavior. Igniting long-buried emotions and family secrets, Hildy is propelled toward a reckoning with the one person she's been avoiding for decades: herself."

"I feel like myself with you," Weaver's Hildy tells Kline's Frank in the trailer. "Usually I only feel like myself when I have a drink in my hand." Later, Frank says before the pair shares a kiss, "Do what you need to do, Hildy. I'm not going anywhere."

"We've been great friends for a long time. We went to rival drama schools, so that's part of our daily banter; we have a mildly competitive and very affectionate relationship," said Weaver. "It was just a joy to act with him again. I trust him so much and I think he trusts me. It was just like we were on wheels and let go."

The Good House is in theaters Sept. 30.
