The Kristen Wiig who dressed up as Harry Styles and joked around on The Tonight Show is nowhere to be found in the new trailer for Hateship Loveship, a film based on the Alice Munro’s 2001 short story “Hateship, Friendship, Courtship, Loveship, Marriage.”
Wiig plays Johanna Parry, a meek woman working as a nanny in the home of an elderly man (Nick Nolte) who needs help taking care of his granddaughter, Sabitha (Hailee Steinfeld). After Johanna sends a silly, innocent letter to Sabitha’s father, the always-in-trouble Ken (Guy Pearce), it’s intercepted by Sabitha and her friends, who turn the correspondence into a fake courtship. Their prank is the catalyst that makes Johanna question the direction her life is going – and what she wants out of it.

Hateship Loveship opens on VOD and in limited release on April 11.
