Your parents could be the coolest people on the planet, but for most, they’re hugely embarrassing. And so introducing them to a new partner is not only fraught with the hopes that Mom and Dad will like them, but also that Mom and Dad don’t say or do anything absolutely mortifying. So you gotta feel for Anton Yelchin in this clip from “5 To 7.”
Co-starring Bérénice Marlohe, Frank Langella, Glenn Close and Olivia Thirlby, the feature debut from “Mad Men” co-producer and writer Victor Levin follows Brian (Yelchin), an aspiring novelist who has an extramarital cinq-a-sept affair with the beautiful wife of a French diplomat Arielle (Marlohe). In the scene below, Brian brings Arielle to meet his parents at the fancy Bemelmen’s Bar in New York City. Arielle is quickly introduced to the charming quirks of Brian’s parents, as he tries his best to undo their various faux pas.
“5 To 7” opens on April 3rd and hits VOD on April 10th.
