Ahead of its US release next week, the first trailer has arrived online for writer-director Ally Walker’s upcoming comedy-drama Sex, Death and Bowling which stars Adrian Grenier and Selma Blair.
Eli McAllister, our eleven-year-old hero, is on a quest. He is also setting out to win The Fiesta Cup, a local bowling tournament. Joining him is his famous fashion designer uncle, Sean McAllister (Adrian Grenier.) Sean hasn’t spent time with his family—specifically his father—for years. But now he has come home to spend time with his older brother, Eli’s father. Thrown into the tournament as his ailing brother’s substitute, Sean clashes with his father as old wounds are opened. But instead of reliving the past, they pull together to bowl their best for Eli, who stands to lose so much. Funny, sweet and soulful, SEX, DEATH AND BOWLING takes us on a journey to learn that the secret to life is loving what you have—even if it is just a split.
Set for release on October 30th in the States, Sex, Death and Bowling features a cast that also includes Bailey Chase, Melora Walters, Drea de Matteo, Mary Lynn Rajskub, Daniel Hugh Kelly and Joshua Rush.
