From Craig Johnson, the director of the 2014 film The Skeleton Twins, and the inspired comics writer/artist Daniel Clowes (whose work was the source material for films such as the intimately observed Ghost World and Art School Confidential) comes an adaptation of Clowes’s entertaining comics examination of a terribly hard-to-like loner named, well, Wilson. As played by Woody Harrelson, Wilson seems to have the superpower of a force field of abrasiveness that constantly surrounds him, leading to the irritation of all those he comes into contact witha circle that grows when he crosses paths with his ex-wife, Pippi (Laura Dern). Further, the smug and outspoken Wilson has to cope with a new fact of lifemeeting his teenaged daughter (Isabella Amara) for the first time. Clowes adapted his graphic novel, and the Wilson cast also includes Judy Greer, Margo Martindale, and Mary Lynn Rajskub.
