Worth Watching - June 7: Accidents Happen Teaser Trailer
I don't really know much about this film, but this teaser looks incredible. That's all you need to know at the start. Another great discovery by Quiet Earth, this teaser is for a film called Accidents Happen, about a dysfunctional family in 1980's New England. Their youngest son Billy has been a witness to a series of tragic accidents, including one that fractured his whole family. The ensuing collision of guilt, truth and self discovery may be just what his family needs to move on. Geena Davis stars as the mom in this. Other than that, just fire this up, because I honestly don't even know where this fits in, but it at least looks great.
