The trailer for Will Ferrell’s new indie comedy-drama “Everything Must Go” has hit the net and from the looks of it, it may be his best performance yet. Adapted and directed by Dan Rush, the film is inspired by Raymond Carver’s short story about “a recovering alcoholic (Ferrell) who holds a yard sale of his life belongings after he gets fired and comes home to find that his wife has thrown all his stuff on the lawn.”
“Everything Must Go” stars Will Ferrell and Rebecca Hall.
Here’s the official synopsis:
Adapted and directed by Dan Rush, and based on a short story by Raymond Carver, EVERYTHING MUST GO tells the story of NICK PORTER (WILL FERRELL) a career salesman whose days of being on top are long gone. The same day Nick gets fired, for falling off the wagon one last time, he returns home to discover his wife has left him, changed the locks on their suburban home and dumped all his possessions out on the front yard. Faced with his life imploding, Nick puts it all on the line – or more properly, on the lawn – reluctantly holding a yard sale that becomes a unique strategy for survival.
