Official Trailer for Michael Chabon's Mysteries of Pittsburgh
After more than a year of waiting, Peace Arch has finally debuted the official trailer for The Mysteries of Pittsburgh. Yes, this is based on Michael Chabon's novel of the same name, and it first premiered at Sundance back in 2008. Although it got slammed by critics, I caught it at the tale end of the fest and actually really enjoyed it, probably more than I should have. It's a very unusual story but it's made up of great performances, specifically from lead Jon Foster and supporting actor Peter Sarsgaard. Oh and I guess I'll say if you like Sienna Miller you better watch this trailer as well - you'll know why once you watch this.
I gave this an 8 out of 10 at Sundance, saying: "It's got great actors, it's got great production values and cinematography, and it's got a great score, and when you combine all of that it can still be very enjoyable."

The film chronicles the defining summer of a recent college graduate (played by Jon Foster) who crosses his gangster father and explores love, sexuality, and the enigmas surrounding his life and his city.
The Mysteries of Pittsburgh is both written and directed by Rawson Marshall Thurber, of Elfquest and Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story previously. The story is based on Michael Chabon's novel of the same name first published in 1988. This first premiered at the Sundance Film Festival back in 2008 and was eventually picked up by Peace Arch Entertainment for distribution. After more than a year of waiting, Peace Arch will finally bring The Mysteries of Pittsburgh to very limited theaters starting on March 27th.
