Greener Grass trailer: Welcome to The Stepford Wives on acid

It's hard to know where to start to Greener Grass. This Sundance hit is very much its own thing which some will love and others will be left scratching their heads about. If the trailer is anything to go by, we're firmly in the former camp. The critics have loved it so far and not only does it look visually unique but the humour is very much in its own world too. This is a world where mothers casually give their babies away, boys turn into dogs and everyone is wearing braces. Why? Who knows, but we're up for finding out. Check out the trailer for Greener Grass above.

In a day-glo-coloured, bizarro version of suburbia where adults wear braces on their already-straight teeth, everyone drives golf carts, and children magically turn into golden retrievers, soccer moms and best friends Jill and Lisa are locked in a passive aggressive battle-of-the-wills that takes a turn into the sinister when Lisa begins systematically taking over every aspect of Jill’s life—starting with her newborn daughter. Meanwhile, a psycho yoga teacher killer is on the loose, Jill’s husband has developed a curious taste for pool water, and Lisa is pregnant with a soccer ball.

Jocelyn DeBoer and Dawn Luebbe have both written and directed their debut film as well as leading the cast, with support from Jim Cummings, Beck Bennett, Neil Casey, Mary Holland and D’Arcy Carden.

Greener Grass hits US cinemas on October 26 and we can only hope it somehow makes its way over to the UK soon.
