It also stars Candice Bergen as Alice's mother. Dolly Wells played Alice's best friend, Tracey. Also written by Meyers-Shyers, it was her directorial debut. In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Shyers shared she had meant to put on the director hat, and Home Again was a perfect chance.
"I never really felt ready to direct, and then I wrote this movie with myself in mind as the filmmaker, so I made it a story very personal [to me] that I thought I would be the right person to tell. So, I kind of backed myself up in that way," the filmmaker and actress told ET.
