Must Watch: Linklater's Me and Orson Welles Official Trailer
Freestyle has debuted the official US trailer for Richard Linklater's Me and Orson Welles on Yahoo. It's a huge improvement over the first promo trailer we ran back in August. This is really a tough sell - they're trying to get the High School Musical fans interested in a film about a stage play while also enticing Richard Linklater fans and admirers of Orson Welles. That's an eclectic group of moviegoers that this is being sold to, but either way, I highly suggest everyone check out this trailer. I think Me and Orson Welles is a highly underrated film with a lead performance by Christian McKay (as Welles) that at least deserves an Oscar.

Me and Orson Welles is directed by Oscar nominated filmmaker Richard Linklater, of great films like Slacker, Dazed and Confused, Before Sunrise and Before Sunset, Waking Life, Fast Food Nation, and A Scanner Darkly. The screenplay was co-written by first-time writers Holly Gent Palmo and Vincent Palmo Jr. and is an adaptation of Robert Kaplow's novel of the same name. This first premiered at the Toronto Film Festival last year but only recently got a US distributor. Freestyle Releasing is finally bringing Me and Orson Welles to limited theaters starting on Thanksgiving, November 25th, later this year. Go see it!
