Watch: Trailer for Sundance Selected 'Goats' with David Duchovny
It's been a long time since David Duchovny was Agent Mulder on The X-Files, and lately the actor has taken to cable roles on "Californication" or the occasional, strange indie role like his turn in Goats, the Sundance selected comedy from Christopher Neil based on the novel of the same name by Mark Jude Poirier. I had a chance to catch the film at Sundance and found myself uninterested in any of the characters, despite a valiant effort by Duchovny to be a hippie, goat herder wiser than his smoked out demeanor lets on. Maybe Sundance was wearing on me, so we'll let you judge for yourself by watching the first trailer below.
Here's the first trailer for Christopher Neil's adaptation of Goats, originally from Yahoo:
Ellis (Graham Phillips) leaves his unconventional desert home to attend the disciplined and structured Gates Academy. There, he re-connects with his estranged biological father and for the first time questions the family dynamics back home, causing him to think about leaving behind his flaky, new age mother and the only real father he has ever known, Goat Man (David Duchovny). Goats is directed by Christopher Neil, a fresh acting coach-turned-filmmaker, from a screenplay based on Mark Poirier's 2001 novel adapted by himself. The film premiered at Sundance and heads to theaters on August 10th this year. Interested?
