Netflix has released a trailer for upcoming drama / dark comedy film “The Land of Steady Habits” based on the 2014 novel of the same name by Ted Thompson. The film arrives on September 14th.
Anders Hill (Ben Mendelsohn), long ensconced in “the land of steady habits”- the affluent hamlets of Connecticut that dot the commuter rail line – is finally ready to reap the rewards of a sensible life. Into his mid fifties and newly retired, his grown son’s college tuitions paid in full, Anders decides he’s had enough of steady habits: he leaves his wife (Edie Falco), buys a condo, and waits for freedom to transform him. Stripped of the comforts of his previous identity, Anders embarks on a clumsy, and heartbreaking journey to reconcile his past with his present.
