Worth Watching - Sept 27: Seth Grossman's The Elephant King Trailer
An official trailer for an indie film titled The Elephant King has recently showed up online. I had no clue what this movie was about until I watched this trailer but found it entertaining enough to feature this weekend. Something about it looks very genuine and I like that about it, especially because I'm always in search of indie gems to fall in love with. The Elephant King is a provocative and stirring story of two American brothers, Oliver and Jake Hunt, adrift in an exotic world they don't fully understand. The only big actor in the cast is Ellen Burstyn, but the two brothers, specifically Tate Ellington, look like they do a fantastic job. If you've got nothing better to do this weekend, than give it a shot.

The Elephant King is both written and directed by up-and-coming filmmaker Seth Grossman and is his feature film debut after directing a few shorts. This first debuted at the Tribeca Film Festival way back in 2006 and was eventually picked up by Unison Films for distribution this year. The Elephant King will arrive in limited theaters (starting in New York City only) on October 17th this fall.
