Watch: Trailer for Wim Wenders' Somber 'Every Thing Will Be Fine'
"Is there nothing that can get to you?" A trailer has debuted online for Wim Wenders' very heartbreaking, somber, moving film Every Thing Will Be Fine. The film stars James Franco, following him across 12 years as he tries to cope with the weight of a fatal accident one snowy night on a quiet road. This trailer gives away pretty much everything, so don't expect to be surprised, just expect to learn where the story is going - and that's the whole point. It's about actually feeling the emotions over years, not just the shock of what happened. I saw this at Berlinale (read my review) and liked it, despite being so somber. Also starring Rachel McAdams, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Marie-Josée Croze and Peter Stormare. Give it a look.
Here's the first official trailer (+ a poster) for Wim Wenders' Every Thing Will Be Fine, via YouTube:
While driving aimlessly after a quarrel with his girlfriend, a writer accidentally runs over and kills a child. The accident and its aftermath deeply traumatizes him. Over the next 12 years, he struggles to make sense of what happened and continue on with life, but when he looks in the mirror, he sees a murderer. Every Thing Will Be Fine is directed by prolific German filmmaker Wim Wenders (Land of Plenty, The Million Dollar Hotel, Paris Texas, Hammett, The American Friend), from a screenplay written by Bjørn Olaf Johannessen. The film premiered at the Berlin Film Festival this year. US release details have yet to be sorted out, though it was released in most of Europe this summer. We'll update with info when it's available.
