MY OLD ASS Trailer: Aubrey Plaza Tries To Guide Her Younger Self in Megan Park’s Sundance Comedy

Aubrey Plaza and Maisy Stella in Megan Park's MY OLD ASS

After bringing audiences to tears with her urgent directorial debut The Fallout, writer-director Megan Park delivers a more lighthearted and hilarious look at female adolescence in her comedy My Old Ass. Premiering at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, this queer comedy centers on 18-year-old Elliot (newcomer Maisy Stella) who, during a shroom trip in the woods, meets her older self (Aubrey Plaza) who warns her not to fall in love. When she meets the boy her older self warned her against, it forces her to rethink everything over the course of one summer before college. Percy Hynes White, Maddie Ziegler, Maria Dizzia, and Kerrice Brooks also star. MGM Amazon picked up the film at Sundance for a whopping $10 million and is set to roll it out in theaters this September. An official trailer has now arrived.

Here’s the official synopsis:

In this fresh coming-of-age story, an 18th birthday mushroom trip brings free-spirited Elliott (Maisy Stella) face-to-face with her wisecracking 39-year-old self (Aubrey Plaza). But when Elliott’s “old ass” starts handing out warnings about what her younger self should and shouldn’t do, Elliott realizes she has to rethink everything about family, love, and what’s becoming a transformative summer.

My Old Ass arrives in theaters Friday, September 13. Watch the trailer below.
