Indie Trailer Sunday: Frank Langella Stars in 'The Time Being' Thriller
"Love for yourself, not for your family." Today's trailer is for a rather interesting indie thriller called The Time Being, from filmmaker Nenad Cicin-Sain, co-starring Wes Bentley and Frank Langella (last seen in the fantastic indie Robot & Frank). The premise for this is actually quite compelling - an abstract painter is hired by a wealthy man to start filming various people, places and things. Why? You'll have to see it to find out. But this trailer does give quite a big hint as to what's going on, though I'm still curious to check it out at some point anyway. Sarah Paulson, Jeremy Allen White & Corey Stoll also star. Give it a look.
Watch the official trailer for Nenad Cicin-Sain's The Time Being, in high def from Apple:
Daniel (Bentley) is a struggling young artist whose ambitions have pushed his marriage to the brink. When a reclusive millionaire named Warner (Langella) purchases one of his pieces, he hopes for additional commissions from a new benefactor. Instead, Werner offers him a series of increasingly bizarre surveillance assignments. As Daniel starts to unravel the secrets behind the requests, he must determine if Warner is out to further his career or ruin his life. The film is written & directed by first-time filmmaker Nenad Cicin-Sain. Tribeca Film will be releasing The Time Being in select theaters on July 26th, available VOD on July 23rd.
