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.

I can never think of Gainsbourg the same way after well...you know.

So what, that just makes her more interesting. Guys have made many crazy roles and went on with their careers, why women shouldn't be allowed to do the same?

I don't mean it in a negative way. It's more like "once seen, it cannot be unseen" kind of way, you know? Maybe not... I mean if a dude shoots a scene where it shows him cutting off his willy, I would have equal pause whenever I saw him on screen again.

I'm pretty sure you weren't thinking something humiliating, but, for a moment, I sensed a bit of unfairness to women. Not that I am their greater advocate, but I like women's strength and courage to do things and so is with the films. I also understand the feeling about 'freakshow' thing, it can cling to anybody. On the other hand, I also have to add, Gainsbourg was, so far, just brave with her acting and should be given the credit for those performances even if they sometime make one feel, well, strange and uneasy. I think actors and actresses should be brave, more than they are today, and Gainsbourg does so which I like, to be honest ...

I am sorry that you perceived any unfairness to women, Shiboleth. I can assure you that was not my intent. Good day.

Take it easy, it wasn't meant so aggressive. Not to worry, I just tried to discern your thinking about it and it all ended well, didn't it? Cheers, enjoy yourself ...
