The Color of Time

Most of the time, when a group of 12 filmmakers get together for a single film, it's an anthology like V/H/S or Paris, je t'aime. But when it comes to The Color of Time, this ensemble of writers and directors (all students from New York University) are working to tell the story of one Pulitzer Prize-winning poet (James Franco), working through some dark memories as he prepares for a reading in New York City. We've seen a trailer for this film before when it was called Tar and played at the Rome Film Festival. Now it's poised for release next month, and honestly, it looks like it's trying to hard to be a Terrence Malick film. Watch now!

Here's the US trailer for the dramatic omnibus The Color of Time, originally from Apple:

James Franco, Mila Kunis, Jessica Chastain, and Zach Braff star in this dramatic and inventive look at the life and work of ionic Pulitzer Prize-winning poet C.K. Williams. Williams (Franco) has a beautiful, adoring wife (Kunis) and a young son. But as he prepares for a reading in New York City and struggles to create new work, he is haunted by memories of his past—from his first sexual encounter to a later tragic loss. An ensemble of 12 directors from New York University work with a star-studded cast to weave together this moving and unique story of a complex man and the relationships that defined him. Starz Digital Media releases the film on iTunes first on December 2nd before it hits limited theaters on December 12th.

Jessica Chastain amaze me more and more, day after day. This looks watchable...

Have you seen The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby? She is stellar in that (and so is James McAvoy). Great movie.

not yet, but definitely planning. Of course, I saw the trailer and it looks amazing. Or better said, she looks amazing... Thanks for reminding...

Yeah, she's amazing in that movie. I love her look with the short hair. It's a really good movie about love, I was pleasantly surprised

Fan-tastic! I think it looks supremely good. Franco and Company looks like they will be turning in Oscar level performances.

Hearing the words love and grace while showing Jessica Chastain as a caring mother sure brings something (and someone) to mind.

Saw this film (when it was called 'Tar') at a screening here in Austin at the Alamo Drafthouse Ritz. James Franco actually did a introduction before the movie and it looked promising. It was a mess of a movie THAT IS trying way too hard to be a Terrence Malick film. But the wifey got a picture with James Franco at the end, so she was happy. 🙂
