From the director of 27 Dresses and The Proposal, Guilt Trip follows the story of inventor Andrew Brewster (Seth Rogan) and his widowed mother Joyce Bewster (Barbara Streisand), whom whilst on a cross-country road trip spanning 3,00 miles to sell his new product, must deal with long-simmering family tensions that neither want to confront.
Andy Brewster is about to embark on the road trip of a lifetime, and who better to accompany him than his overbearing mother Joyce. After deciding to start his adventure with a quick visit at mums, Andy is guilted into bringing her along for the ride. He is constantly aggravated with her antics, but over time comes to realize that their lives have more in common than originally thought.
Based on a real-life trip by screenwriter Dan Fogelman, Guilt Trip looks set to take audiences on a road trip across an ever changing landscape with a couple of people who may end up offering each other exactly what they both needed.
