Kodi Smit-McPhee Has Teen Angst in 'All the Wilderness' Trailer
After his breakthrough role in Let Me In, young actor Kodi Smit-McPhee has grown up quite a bit, as evidence by his pivotal supporting role in Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. And now he has the SXSW entry All the Wilderness allowing him to showcase his still impressive acting abilities with the coming-of-age drama about a teenage boy struggling through life after the death of his father. The first trailer for the film has arrived, and it looks beautiful. Reviews have also praised the film's soundtrack that features Sigur Ros and more. It's also nice to see Danny DeVito on the big screen again. It looks like one to seek out. Watch!
Here's the first trailer for Michael Johnson's All the Wilderness, originally from Apple:
All the Wilderness is both written and directed by first-time filmmaker Michael Johnson. James (Kodi-Smit-McPhee) has shut himself off from his surroundings, falling into a world of imagination and darkness. Visits with his psychiatrist (Danny Devito) have proven unhelpful – though he takes a liking to fellow patient, Val (Isabelle Fuhrman). As James begins to rebel against his single mother (Virginia Madsen), he ventures into the night where he meets a mysterious kid (Evan Ross) who welcomes him into an eccentric city. Relationships are put to the test as James navigates unfamiliar territory, wrestling with the reality of his own personal wilderness. Screen Media Films releases the film on VOD and in theaters February 20th.
