Sigourney Weaver delivers a stellar performance as Hildy Good, a realtor in an idyllic New England town, whose wickedly funny tongue and seeming success mask her life’s one dark truth: She enjoys her wine a bit too much. But Hildy’s good at keeping it together – until, that is, a rekindled romance with high school flame Frank Getchell (Kevin Kline) sets in motion a chain of events that forces a decades-in-the-making confrontation with Hildy’s buried past. Based on the best-selling novel, The Good House is a multifaceted portrait of a proud, resilient woman who wouldn’t think of asking for help…and whose life won’t change until she does.

About The Good House Movie:

The Good House is an American comedy-drama film directed by Maya Forbes and Wally Wolodarsky, who wrote the screenplay with Thomas Bezucha.

It is based on the novel of the same name by Ann Leary.

The film was announced on September 23, 2019, that filming had begun in Canada on the project.

It is the final Amblin Partners film to be produced under the Participant label for social justice content (since Participant terminated its equity stake in Amblin Partners, ending its relationship with the company on November 30, 2020).

The Good House had its world premiere at the 2021 Toronto International Film Festival on September 15, 2021

Originally, Universal Pictures was set to distribute in the United States and some other international territories, but the film’s U.S. rights were later said to be on sale. On June 13, 2022, days before the film’s premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival on June 18, Lionsgate and Roadside Attractions acquired North American rights to the film. Following the film’s premiere at Tribeca, it was released on September 30 of the same year.

The film was released for VOD on October 18, 2022, followed by a Blu-ray and DVD release on November 22, 2022.
