Not only are Lily and Charlie celebrating six months of marriage, but they are also celebrating the upcoming release of their new movie together, Windfall.

The Netflix original, which was directed by Charlie and stars the Emily in Paris actress, is a crime thriller about a man who "breaks into a tech billionaire's empty vacation home, but things go sideways when the arrogant mogul and his wife arrive for a last-minute getaway." The movie also stars How I Met Your Mother star Jason Segel.

Lily shared a series of behind-the-scenes clips marking both her marital and film-making achievements on Instagram. "Today marks 6 months of marriage AND two weeks until #WINDFALL releases!" she wrote.

The celebratory tribute

The first picture of the carousel features her in a chic camel blazer with black trousers giving her back to the camera, as she fist bumps her husband while on set. Her husband joked about their gesture in the comments, writing: "Do we really fist bump after a take?"
