Rarely does a trailer make me want to see a film. I saw this trailer yesterday and immediately I knew I wanted to see it even though I didn’t know what the movie was about. The complete absence of Hollywood glam and soundtracking coupled with every shot beeing in natural light really appeals to me.
I did some poking around and here is what the movie is actually about:
“In the cold, winter light of a rural Mississippi Delta township, a man’s suicide radically transforms three characters’ lives and throws off-balance what has long been a static arrangement among them. Marlee is a single mother struggling to scratch a living for herself and James, her 12-year-old son, who has begun to stumble under drug and violence pressures. So when the opportunity to seek safe harbor at a new home arises, she grabs it, though the property is shared by Lawrence, a man with whom Marlee has feuded bitterly since James’s birth.”
