Watch This: 80s Coming of Age Indie Drama Skateland Trailer
Earlier this week our friends at Quiet Earth debuted a new trailer for a coming-of-age indie drama called Skateland that I actually saw at Sundance last January. At the time I wasn't sure how much I liked it, as but as time goes on and I think back to the film, the more I admire it. Skateland is set in the 80's and stars the irresistible Ashley Greene as well as A.J. Buckley and Shiloh Fernandez as a couple of teens living at the height of their youth (centered around a skating rink) until one of their friends is killed. It's got a truly rockin' soundtrack and beautiful classic style and is all-around just a great film. Watch the trailer below!
Watch an early promo trailer for Anthony Burns' Skateland, embedded from YouTube:
In the early 1980s, in small-town Texas, dramatic events force a 19-year-old skating rink manager to look at his life in a very new way. This also stars Finch Nissen, Haley Ramm, James LeGros and Brett Cullen.
Skateland is directed by first-time feature filmmaker Anthony Burns, who attended Southwest Texas State University, and co-wrote the screenplay with brothers Brandon and Heath Freeman, who also co-produced the film. This first premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year and played at the SXSW Film Festival in Austin last March. We're not sure who the US distributor is (or if it even has one yet) as there is no release date set for this. We'll keep you updated on any eventual release plans. Anyone interested?
