"A love story for the modern age." Cohen Media Group has debuted the official US trailer for the upcoming release of François Ozon latest film, The New Girlfriend, starring Romain Duris, Anaïs Demoustier and Raphaël Personnaz. This first premiered at the Toronto Film Festival last year, and also played at the London, Stockholm, Zurich, Hong Kong, Seattle, Glasgow, and Montclair Film Festivals. The story follows a woman who discovers her late friend's husband, played by Romain Duris (seen in The Beat That My Heart Skipped, Mood Indigo, Chinese Puzzle), likes to dress like a woman. It looks like an interesting film, almost like something from Xavier Dolan or Wong Kar Wai, with beautiful cinematography and vivid performances.
