David Sedaris' 'C.O.G.' trailer: From short story to big screen
C.O.G., the first-ever movie adaptation from the brilliant essays of author David Sedaris, now has its first trailer.
Jonathan Groff (Glee) plays David, the character based on Sedaris, who decides to join the working class after graduating from Yale, moving to Oregon to work on an apple farm. Convinced he has life all figured out, he knows he will be a god among the small-town nobodies — but he is shocked to discover how backbreaking the work can be. What follows is a classic coming-of-age story, with a dash of Sedaris’ dry wit and refusal to be anything but exactly who he is.
Based on a short story found in Naked, the author’s anthology of autobiographical essays, the film also stars Troian Bellisario (Pretty Little Liars), Cory Stoll (House of Cards), and Casey Wilson (Happy Endings).
C.O.G. premiered at Sundance in January, and hits theaters September 20.
