Father Figures Synopsis

In the Alcon Entertainment comedy Father Figures, Owen Wilson (The Grand Budapest Hotel, Wedding Crashers) and Ed Helms (The Hangover films, We're the Millers) star as fraternal twins Kyle and Peter who accidentally discover they've been living with a lie all their lives. The kindly man in the photo on their mantle isn't their father after all, but an invention their mother (Glenn Close) concocted to conceal the truth: that she actually doesn't know who their real father is. See, it was the seventies, and things were crazy, and...well, you know.

Armed with only a handful of clues, the brothers resolve to find the mystery man in what results in a wild road trip of discovery and revelations---about their mother, themselves and each other.

Father Figures marks the directorial debut of veteran cinematographer Lawrence Sher (_The Hangover _films). It also stars Oscar winner J.K. Simmons (Whiplash), comedian Katt Williams, NFL Hall of Fame quarterback-turned-actor Terry Bradshaw, Ving Rhames (the_Mission Impossible _films), Harry Shearer (The Simpsons), and Oscar nominee June Squibb (Nebraska), with Oscar winner Christopher Walken (The Deer Hunter), and Oscar nominee Glenn Close (Albert Nobbs, Guardians of the Galaxy) as Kyle and Peter's mother.
