The film stars Hugh Jackman as Peter, whose teenage son Nicholas, played by Zen McGrath, moves back in with him two years after a difficult divorce from his wife, played by Laura Dern.

Nicholas doesn’t feel safe living with Dern’s Kate anymore, but his return into Peter’s life complicates things just as Peter awaits a new baby with Beth, played by Vanessa Kirby.

As things come to a head, past mistakes resurface and crisis seemingly looms.

“The look in his eye is disturbing,” Beth says at one point in the trailer.
