It’s been a while since I’ve seen an “indie” trailer where I couldn’t wait to see the movie. Today I watched a bunch of trailers to see what’s “coming soon to a theater near me” and two trailers really stuck out.
A huge hit at Sundance. Quick synopsis: A retired jewel thief is given a robot companion but uses its help to court a local librarian and reboot his criminal career.
In theaters August 24
Maybe this one resonated with me being a writer and wishing some of the stuff I create would become real. Another favorite from Sundance, this one’s from the producers of Little Miss Sunshine. Quick Synopsis (IMDB) A novelist struggling with writer’s block finds romance in a most unusual way: by creating a female character he thinks will love him, then willing her into existence.
