National openings for the feature film, which was written and directed by Jeff Lipsky, will commence in February.

Groff is joined in the new film by Barbara Barrie, Reed Birney, Halley Feiffer, Mamie Gummer, Portia Reiners, Rebecca Schull and Karen Young.

"There are three women in the Langley household," according to press notes. "Vivien (Karen Young), the mother, is caught between a fierce independence and an almost agoraphobic attachment to home; seductive and confident Mel (Portia Reiners) is a 19 year‐old mirror of her mother; Maura (Mamie Gummer), 22, is alienated, afraid and unable to pinpoint her place in the world. They live together in a seemingly close household, yet each is very much alone. The man of the house, Martin (Reed Birney), left long ago to pursue a new way of life, but keeps a shadow presence: he maintains a comfortable erotic tie to his ex‐wife and a tentative relationship with Mel. Maura has all but shunned him. The family's status quo explodes when Jeff (Jonathan Groff) walks into their comfortable yet dysfunctional world."

Filmmaker Lipsky won critical praise for his look at the rise and fall of a marriage in the indie hit "Flannel Pajamas."

"Twelve Thirty" is produced by Dan Satorius.
