Kristen Wiig is exercising her serious side in the new trailer for the upcoming drama "Hateship Loveship." The "SNL" funny lady has recently turned toward more dramatic roles, giving her well-known comedic skills a break. After appearing as the object of Ben Stiller's attraction in "The Secret Life of Walter Mitty," Wiig picked up "Hateship Loveship," as well as another drama, "The Skeleton Twins."

In the latest clip from "Hateship Loveship," Wiig stars as a timid, awkward woman named Johanna Parry. She is hired as a nanny by an older man (played by Nick Nolte), to care for his granddaughter Sabitha (Hailee Steinfeld). Sabitha and her best friend Edith (Sami Gayle), play a trick on Johanna, making her think that Sabitha's troubled father (Guy Pearce) is interested in her.

Based on Alice Munro's short story collection "Hateship, Friendship, Courtship, Loveship, Marriage," the film will hit theaters on April 11. Take a look at the trailer for "Hateship Loveship" below.
