The very talented Toni Collette (United States Of Tara, Little Miss Sunshine) reunites with director P.J. Hogan for the first time since their collaboration in Murial’s Wedding back in 1994. The new film is called Mental and it’s due to come out on March 29 in theaters and on iTunes.
In Mental, Collette plays Shaz, a single woman hired by a father of five girls to be a nanny and take care of them after their mother has a nervous breakdown. You can see this breakdown unfold in the trailer. Why does she have a breakdown, you ask? Well, she simply cracked after dealing with the stress of her husband’s political ambitions and infidelity. Shaz is described as charismatic, hot tempered, inspiring, and completely nuts… but exactly what the family needs.
Some other familiar faces in this Australian comedy include Anthony LaPaglia who plays the father and Liev Schreiber who plays a shark hunter. Check out the trailer below!
