The film won writer-director Jill Soloway the Directing Award in the U.S. Dramatic Competition at the Sundance Film Festival
Most wives don't want their husbands hanging out with a young female stripper, but in "Afternoon Delight," Kathryn Hahn ("Parks and Recreation") plays a bored housewife who invites one to move in.
The first trailer for the Sundance hit focuses on Rachel (Hahn), a woman who tries to spice up her sex life by taking her husband (Josh Radnor) to a strip club where she gets a lap dance from McKenna, a free-spirited young woman played by Juno Temple. After running into the troubled 19-year-old stripper outside of the dark confines of a gentleman's club, Rachel invites her to move in to her Silver Lake home as a nanny.
Rachel's generosity, however, may be just a cover for her own boredom, and subsequent fascination with McKenna's uninhibited sexuality.
TheWrap's editor-in-chief, Sharon Waxman, wrote that the film was "among the best of a crop of movies dealing with a grown-up identity crisis at Sundance this year, notable for treating the woman at the center of its story with sophistication and honesty."
"Afternoon Delight," which also features performances from Jane Lynch and Keegan-Michael Key, is being released in theaters by The Film Arcade later this year.
For those not lucky enough to catch the film at Sundance, enjoy the first look:
