Sometimes good isn’t good enough.

In the new trailer for her upcoming film, Where’d You Go, Bernadette, Cate Blanchett plays Bernadette Fox, a Seattle mom to a smart teen (Emma Nelson) and a loving wife to her caring husband (Billy Crudup).

Based on Maria Semple’s 2012 bestselling novel by the same name, the story revolves around the close-knit Fox family. When Bernadette’s daughter suggests going on a family trip to Antarctica, Bernadette realizes she isn’t content with the life she has and sets out to change it. So she heads out on an adventure — and tells no one.

“Something unexpected has come up,” Blanchett — who rocks a brunette bob and bangs as Bernadette — says in the debut trailer, released on Tuesday. “There’s much more explanation coming. I have this one shot.”

Her concerned friends and family then set out to look for Bernadette, confused how such a seemingly happy woman with everything she could want could go missing without warning.
