Based on the graphic novel of the same name by GHOST WORLD author Daniel Clowes (who also wrote the script), Craig Johnson's WILSON stars Woody Harrelson as a perpetually neurotic, brutally honest middle-aged man who discovers years after the fact that he's got a teen daughter he never knew about. With nothing much else going on in his life, Wilson joins forces with his estranged ex-wife (Laura Dern) to track said daughter down... which is easier said than done when you're something of a walking disaster.
WILSON premiered to enthusiastic reviews at this year's Sundance Film Festival, and finds Harrelson operating in peak “Woody Harrelson” mode (note: this is the best Woody Harrelson mode). In addition to Harrelson and Dern, WILSON also features a slew of talented comedic actresses, including Judy Greer, Cheryl Hines, Mary Lynn Rajskub, Margot Martindale and Laura Weedman.
Is this the sleeper comedy hit of the year? With a cast and crew this talented, it's certainly got a shot at that title
