Actors Joaquin Phoenix and Gaby Hoffmann made an appearance at the photocall for C’mon C’mon at the 59th New York Film Festival.

The festival, which returned as in-person, showcased this fall’s most anticipated films. Directed by Mike Mills, this emotional film tells the story of a radio journalist, Johnny, who travels the country to interview children about how they view the world in relation to their future. Johnny’s sister, Viv, asks him to watch his young nephew Jesse while she takes care of Jesse’s father, who is mentally ill. Johnny brings Jesse along his journey through the states and ultimately learns from a perspective he didn’t know he needed.

Phoenix delivers an emotional performance, allowing the public to see his acting diversity. NYFF featured in-person screenings and a number of outdoor and virtual events this year, after its 2020 virtual hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The film will be released by A24 and is set to reach the public on November 19, 2021. This will be Phoenix’s first role since his Oscar-winning performance as The Joker in the 2019 film, Joker.
