White Girl Trailer

FilmRise has debuted a new trailer for an indie called White Girl, which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival this year, the first feature from director Elizabeth Wood. In the film, Morgan Saylor stars as a "white girl" who falls for a guy and desperately tries to keep him in her life. The cast includes Brian Marc, Justin Bartha, Adrian Martinez, India Menuez, Anthony Ramos and Chris Noth. This trailer is red band because it shows how wild this film is - tons of drug use, lots of sex in a story about a young woman trying to figure out who she is. I didn't hear many positive things about this, only that there's lots of drugs.

Here's the first official red band trailer for Elizabeth Wood's White Girl, direct from YouTube:

Summer, New York City. A college girl (Morgan Saylor) falls hard for a guy she just met. After a night of partying goes wrong, she goes to wild extremes to get him back. White Girl is both written and directed by American filmmaker Elizabeth Wood, making her feature directorial debut after a few other shorts and a documentary previously. It first premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year in the Dramatic Competition category. FilmRise will be releasing Wood's White Girl later this year, but an exact date is not available yet - sometime in the fall. For more info, visit the film's official website here. Anyone interested?

  • This is a serious Oscar (Wilde) contender. One shade of Grey. Or should I say One shade of White.

    Good, more women directors and telling stories about young women. It looks promising and I wondered where I'd seen the young female lead, Morgan Saylor, before. She was on the pretty good Homeland on cable TV and was good enough in it that she stood out for me. Good luck to them all with this one!

    That looks like it could be good. As already stated, female director is a good part of it, too. And I like that line (approximately): Nightmare dressed like a crazy party. Yeah, that's what stories of success are...
