Premiering at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, “C.O.G.” tells the
story of a recent Yale graduate who deviates from his parents’ plan for
him and ventures to an Oregon apple farm to pick fruit. “The Cider House
Rules,” this is not. “C.O.G.” is based on one of David Sedaris’ autobiographical short
stories included in his 1997 anthology, “Naked,” and carries a quirkier
tone than the 1999 John Irving adaptation. Indiewire Chief Film Critic
Eric Kohn said the film “is like a collage of Americana from the perspective of someone incapable of comprehending its value,” when he reviewed it at Sundance in January.
“C.O.G.” hits theaters September 20, exactly eight months after its premiere in Park City. Watch the first trailer below. And go here for our exclusive first look at the film’s poster.
