‘Sam & Kate’ Trailer: Dustin Hoffman And Sissy Spacek Star With Their Kids In New Family Comedy

It’s always cool to see the torch being passed to the next generation, especially on the big screen. We’ve seen some of the great actors working alongside their children, and with the new family comedy Sam & Kate, it’s Dustin Hoffman and Sissy Spacek’s turn.

Hoffman is joined by his son Jake Hoffman, while Sissy stars alongside her daughter Schuyler Fisk in Sam & Kate. Jake plays a son who returns home to take care of his sick father, played by Dustin. Fisk plays a potential love interest for Jake, while Spacek’s character catches the eye of Dustin’s. So lots of love goin’ around in this flick.

Tyler Labine, Elizabeth Faith Ludlow, Dylan McNamara, and Elizabeth Becka co-star. The film is directed by Darren Le Gallo, the husband of actress Amy Adams who is also aboard as exec-producer. You’d think he could get her for a cameo or something.

Sam & Kate opens in theaters on November 11th, followed by VOD on November 18th.

A life-affirming family dramedy starring OscarĀ®-winners Dustin Hoffman and Sissy Spacek, Sam & Kate takes place in a small town in the heart of the country. Hoffman plays Bill, the larger-than-life father to Sam (Jake Hoffman), who has returned home to take care of his ailing dad. While home, Sam falls for a local woman, Kate (Schuyler Fisk). And at the same time, Bill starts to fall for her mom, Tina (Spacek). But finding love is complicated and for these four, it is no different. They all must confront their past in order to make their new love work for the future. Truly a family affair, art imitates life with the father/son casting of Dustin & Jake and the mother/daughter casting of Sissy & Schuyler.
