Watch: First Trailer for Artist Carter's 'Maladies' Starring James Franco
"This is the story of an actor, who is no longer acting." Not too long ago, we featured the full trailer for James Franco's adaptation of Cormac McCarthy's Child of God. Now Franco is back in front of the camera with another low profile release in Maladies. In the film, Franco appropriate plays an actor named James, an unstable former soap opera star in 1960’s New York as he tries to restart his floundering creative career. There's a seemingly omnipotent narrator that the lead character can apparently hear, and this feels a little odd. Catherine Keener and David Strathairn also star in the film that looks like another weird flick.
Here's the very first trailer for Carter's Maladies, direct from Tribeca Films:
Maladies is written and directed by multimedia artist Carter and charts the struggles of an unstable former soap opera star (James Franco) in 1960’s New York as he tries to restart his floundering creative career. Hoping to find clarity and new purpose as a writer, he holes up with his eccentric sister (Fallon Goodson) at the seaside home of their best friend (Catherine Keener). But as he disappears further into his own mind, reality begins to slip through his grasp. David Strathairn and Alan Cumming also star in the film which Tribeca Films releases on VOD and iTunes March 25th and in select theaters March 21st. Interested?
