First US Trailer for Pascale Ferran's 'Bird People' with Josh Charles
"Sometimes people change..." IFC Films has debuted the full US trailer for Pascale Ferran's new film Bird People, a two-part story set in Paris, France about two people - one of them is Gary Newman, played by Josh Charles following up his "Good Wife" departure; the other is Audrey, played by Anaïs Demoustier, a young French hotel maid who has an interesting story of her own. It's a very beautiful trailer, I will admit, with a lovely score and alluring premise with all the right shots to drag you in. What does the name Bird People have to do with the story? Well, that's one of those you-have-to-see-it-to-find-out kind of questions. Well, actually, they don't show all of it but they do hint a bit at what's going on in the trailer anyway. Enjoy.
Here's the first official US trailer for Pascale Ferran's Bird People, originally debuted by The Playlist:
An American arrives in Paris, checks into a hotel, turns off his cell phone and starts his life anew. Bird People is the latest film directed by French filmmaker Pascale Ferran, of the films Coming to Terms with the Dead, L'âge des possibles and Lady Chatterley previously. The screenplay was co-written by Guillaume Bréaud & Pascale Ferran. Bird People first premiered at the Cannes Film Festival this summer. From Blake Williams' review, about the second half: "what unfolds is a display of pure, go-for-broke ridiculousness that only a true visionary would even think to realize with this level of commitment... It must be said that despite whatever clunkiness one must wade through to get here, this section of the film is veritable 'must-see' stuff."
Pascale Ferran's Bird People will open in select theaters and on VOD starting September 12th next month. It will also play at TIFF 2014 next month before IFC Films opens the film in theaters. Grab your interest?
