December 20, 2011- monterey media is proud to announce the acquisition of all U.S. rights to A Good Folks Film and Wonder Entertainment Production's romantic comedy "Take Me Home," produced by Sam Jaeger, Jane Kelly Kosek, and Michael Hobert. A Good Folks Film and Wonder Entertainment Production, Featuring Sam Jaeger (Parenthood, Catch and Release), Victor Garber (Titanic, Alias), Cristine Rose (Heroes), Lin Shaye (There's Something About Mary), Bree Turner (The Ugly Truth), Brennan Elliot (Flight 93), and Amber Jaeger (Solitary). Set against the backdrop of the American landscape in thirteen different states “Take Me Home” will arrive in theatres in the Spring of 2012.

"The film was fantastic on every level. A wonderful and sprawling trip across the country. The film has a quiet charm that is fascinating. A real treat for anyone who loves a good film and a nice story."

"If you can only see one movie during the Savannah Film Festival this year, make it the independent feature Take Me Home. The film is funny, unpredictable, touching, beautifully paced - and extremely well-made. I predict it will be Hollywood's next My Big Fat Greek Wedding, the dark horse to come from behind. Take Me Home is a revelation."

About "Take Me Home"
After getting turned down by a photography agency, Thom finds his landlord throwing all of his belongings out into the hallway. With no job prospects and no place to sleep, Thom must turn to his recurring last resort: driving his illegal taxicab around the streets of New York.

Fortunately for him, Claire Barrow isn't having a good day, either. First she comes home to find her husband flirting with his new secretary, then discovers her estranged father has suffered a heart attack in California. In a frenzy, Claire runs out into the night and hails what she assumes to be a cab. What she gets instead ... is Thom.

With her life in ruins, Claire decides on a whim to pay Thom to drive her out to California. With nothing in New York to call his own, Thom reluctantly agrees.

The path across America takes more than the usual detours, through mountains, barren deserts, and the occasional family reunion. But it's what awaits Thom and Claire in California that forces them to choose between the lives they've left behind, and the possibilities glimpsed along their journey.
