Echo Park Trailer

"Can the vacation, or the crisis, or whatever it is, just be over now? Can you come back to reality, because this is not reality. Echo Park is not reality." Array Releasing has debuted a new trailer for the indie drama Echo Park, the directorial debut of celebrity photographer turned filmmaker Amanda Marsalis, starring Mamie Gummer and Anthony Okungbowa. This "lyrical drama" is about two people coming together across cultural economic and racial boundaries. This initially premiered back in 2014, but Array has been finding gems like this to release and it's just hitting theaters in April. I'm totally sold, this looks really good, a refreshing change from the typical romantic drama. That shot of Mamie at 1:22 is just so beautiful. Enjoy!

Here's the official trailer (+ poster) for Amanda Marsalis' Echo Park, direct from Array's YouTube:

Echo Park takes viewers inside a diverse East Los Angeles neighborhood where residents contend with life and love while being challenged to define themselves in spite of their zip code. Sophie (Gummer) flees from her life of status and security, developing an unexpected romance with Alex (Okungbowa) who is also in search of a new start. Echo Park is directed by acclaimed celebrity photographer turned filmmaker Amanda Marsalis, from a screenplay written by Catalina Aguilar Mastretta. The film first premiered at the 2014 Los Angeles Film Festival and is an official selection of the Ashland Independent Film Festival and Toronto's Female Eye Film Festival. Array will release Echo Park in limited theaters starting on April 15th.

    ...'acclaimed' celebrity photographer...ummmmm...just what the hell does that have to do with the price of tea in China? Just wonderin'....'acclaimed'...what a load of bullshit PR marketing crap. And a 'celebrity' photographer to boot? Well, hell...guess we all gotta see this then, eh? Man oh man oh there no shame anymore? You couldn't get me within a country mile of this nonsense!
    Pleasant fodder.
