Jesse Eisenberg directs Julianna Moore and Finn Wolfhard in When You Finish Saving the World

A24 has released a trailer for the upcoming comedy-drama When You Finish Saving the World.

The film marks the feature directorial debut for writer-director Jesse Eisenberg and stars Julianne Moore and Finn Wolfhard as Evelyn and Ziggy, a mother and son with a strained relationship who may have more in common than they would care to admit.

Evelyn (Julianne Moore) has devoted herself to helping people in hard times, but she struggles to connect with her son Ziggy (Finn Wolfhard), an aspiring internet star oblivious to the problems of the world.

As Evelyn attempts to become a parent figure to an unassuming teenager she meets at her shelter, and Ziggy fumbles through his pursuit of a brilliant and politically conscious young woman at his high school, this emotional comedy reveals a funny and sharply perceptive portrait of a mother and son who may seem at odds but who are more alike than either would care to admit.

Joining Moore and Wolfhard in the cast are Alisha Boe and Jay O. Sanders.

When You Finish Saving the World arrives in cinemas on January 20th.
