There are good days in store for Rodrigo Garcia.
The 60-year-old Colombian television and film director is set to direct the drama Four Good Days, about a mother helping her daughter work through four crucial days on the road to recovery from substance abuse.
The film will star Glenn Close, Mila Kunisand Stephen Root.
Launched at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, the project is due to begin shooting next week in Los Angeles.
Root will play the role of Chris, a man worn down by the emotional stress caused by his stepdaughter’s (Kunis) addiction and his wife’s (Close) attempts to save her.
Garcia directs from his own script, co-written by Washington Post 2014 Pulitzer Prize winner Eli Saslow, based on Saslow’s article.
Garcia’s credits include the films Nine Lives, Mother and Child, Albert Nobbs, Last Days in the Desert, as well as the HBO drama series In Treatment.
