Brendan Gleeson & Taylor Kitsch in New Trailer for 'Grand Seduction'
After making the festival run last year, the charming comedy The Grand Seduction is coming to United States theaters this spring. The film is actually a remake of Seducing Doctor Lewis, an Italian film from 2004. However, it also feels like a European take on Doc Hollywood from back in 1991. The story follows a small fishing village that’s in desperate need of a doctor to not only treat the many, sometimes amusingly, afflicted residents, but also to fulfill a business contract that will keep the local factory up and running. So when a hot shot doctor (Taylor Kitsch) comes to town, the mayor (Brendan Gleeson) does all he can to impress him, sometimes with charmingly hilarious results. This looks like a real crowd-pleaser. Watch now!
Here's the new theatrical trailer for Don McKellar's The Grand Seduction from eOne:
The Grand Seduction is directed by Canadian actor-filmmaker Don McKellar (of Childstar, Last Night) from a script by Michael Dowse and Ken Scott, based on the film Seducing Doctor Lewis. When unlikely candidate and big city doctor Paul Lewis (Taylor Kitsch) lands in their lap for a trial residence, the townsfolk of a small fishing village rally together to charm him into staying in order to help them secure a lucrative business contract. As the doctor’s time in the village winds to a close, acting mayor Murray French (Brendan Gleeson) has no choice but to pull out all the stops and begin The Grand Seduction. The film premiered at Toronto & Torino Film Festivals and now eOne Films releases it in limited theaters May 30th.
