Watch: Juliette Lewis is a New Mommy in Quirky 'Kelly & Cal' Trailer
"You can't just define yourself by the things you've lost." IFC Films has debuted the trailer for a cute, quirky little indie called Kelly & Cal, starring Juliette Lewis as a punk-rocker turned suburban mom. The film is the feature debut of both director Jen McGowan and writer Amy Lowe Starbin, telling a very earnest, heartfelt story about friends. The cast includes Alysia Reiner, Cybill Shepherd, Margaret Colin, Josh Hopkins and Jonny Weston as the kid in the wheelchair. You might also recognize Weston from the time travel film Project Almanac. This might be a bit too quirky for my tastes, but it doesn't look half bad at all.
Here's the official US trailer for Jen McGowan's Kelly & Cal, direct from IFC Films' YouTube:
Punk-rocker turned suburban mom, Kelly (Juliette Lewis), is nostalgic for a life she can no longer have and uncertain of a future she doesn’t yet fit in. Seventeen-year-old Cal is frustrated at his lack of control over the hand he's been dealt. When the two strike up an unlikely friendship, it's the perfect spark needed to thrust them both back to life. Kelly & Cal is directed by Jen McGowan, who is making her feature debut after a number of shorts, from a screenplay by newcomer Amy Lowe Starbin. The film first premiered at the SXSW Film Festival. IFC Films will be releasing Kelly & Cal in theaters and VOD September 5th this fall.
