Peacock has unveiled a slate of original films, all of which will debut on the service in September.

Awkward and Charming Trailer for Emile Hirsch's Coming-of-Age Movie Peel

Sony Pictures has released the first trailer for a new coming-of-age film called Peel. The movie stars Emile Hirsch as a very sheltered boy who never really left his childhood home. After his mom dies he has to figure out how to survive in a world he knows nothing about and embarks on a journey to find his two brothers who were taken away by Peel’s father years earlier.

I like Hirsch as an actor, and this is a very different kind of role for him that he has taken on. It actually looks like it could be a charmingly awkward movie. Here’s the synopsis:

After his father takes his two brothers and leaves him, Peel (Emile Hirsch) is forced to grow up in a state of arrested development. Once his mother dies, he must forge his own path and move forward on his own, while attempting to find his lost brothers.

Emile Hirsch is Peel in Trailer for Quirky Coming-of-Age Drama 'Peel'

"I'm happy you're still alive." Sony Pictures has debuted an official trailer for an indie coming-of-age film titled simple Peel, from director Rafael Monserrate. This just premiered at the Santa Barbara Film Festival earlier this year, and is heading straight to VOD for release in May. Emile Hirsch stars as Peel, a sheltered boy who grew up within the confines of his childhood home. When his mother dies, he must venture out into the world alone and figure out how to survive, and how to find his family again. Peel's lack of cynicism and innocence has an inadvertent, yet powerful effect on those he meets, as he brings a group of marginalized misfits closer to their true home. Also starring Amy Brenneman, Jack Kesy, Shiloh Fernandez, Yaya DaCosta, and Jacob Vargas. Definitely looks a bit awkward yet amusing, but doesn't seem too promising. Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Rafael Monserrate's Peel,

Emile Hirsch Has Red Hair and a Heart of Gold in ‘Peel’ Trailer (Exclusive Video)
Emile Hirsch’s bright red hair and freckles in his new film “Peel” has made him innocent, naive and estranged from his family, but he is still the “most decent person” you’ll meet.

In this charming, emotional and quirky coming of age story, Hirsch plays Peel, a young man who goes on a road trip to reconnect with his long-lost, brown-haired brothers after his mother’s death.

“Everyone would tease me and say my hair was red because my mom had an affair with the pool boy,” Hirsch says in the first trailer for “Peel,” which TheWrap has obtained exclusively. “She told me I sprouted from an orange peel.”
