Filmmaker Sally Potter’s new film dropped its first trailer a few hours ago and Bleeker Street could have a winner on its hands. Potter’s last film was the biting and witty satire “The Party”. Her latest “The Roads Not Taken” looks to be going in a much different direction and Potter seems to have some good pieces in place.
The movie features the intriguing match of Javier Bardem and Elle Fanning who play a father and daughter. It looks like Bardem plays a detached writer in the middle of an existential crisis. To make matters worse his declining health adds a layer of what looks like delirium. Meanwhile his loving daughter (Fanning) struggles to connect with her emotional distant father over the course on one single day.
“The Roads Not Taken” is scheduled to hit theaters on March 13th. Check out the trailer below and let me know if you’ll be seeing it or taking a pass.
I very much like Bardem and Fanning but on the fence with this one.
I like them too. My main concern is its release. Not sure if it will be wide or limited (I’m thinking limited).
Oh this looks special.
I think it really could be. Fingers crossed.
I saw this trailer yesterday. Looks interesting as I’ve seen a few of Potter’s films in Orlando and Ginger & Rosa as she is a fascinating filmmaker.
Yep. Really anxious to see what she does here. And I hope it gets a wide enough release.
I enjoyed Sally Potter’s The Party. It was a frantic, almost-home-movie-budgeted little play. This seems more cinematic and “deep”. Fascinating filmmaker and great cast!
I agree. This could be a real treat. And Bardem can certainly play ‘tortured’.
