Ithaca Trailer

"There will always be pain in this world, Homer, and a good man will seek to take the pain out of things." Momentum Pictures has debuted the first official trailer for the film Ithaca, the feature directorial debut of actress Meg Ryan, who also stars in this. Based on William Saroyan's novel titled The Human Comedy, the story is about a bike messenger, played by Alex Neustaedter, who delivers letters during World War II in the 1940s. One letter in particular, however, will change him forever. The full cast includes Sam Shepard, Meg Ryan, Tom Hanks, Hamish Linklater, Jack Quaid, Molly Gordon and Gabriel Basso. This looks like a fairly nice, harmless indie drama to see this fall. There definitely is an indie feel to it, not in a good way, but I'm hopeful that the emotions in the story shine through in the end. Give this a watch below.

Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Meg Ryan's Ithaca, originally in high def from Apple:

Ithaca Poster

When his older brother leaves to fight in the Second World War, fourteen-year-old Homer Macauley takes on a job as a bicycle telegraph messenger to provide for his widowed mother, his older sister and his younger brother. Homer delivers messages of love, hope, pain and death to the good people of Ithaca, but soon must grapple with a message that will change him forever. Based on Pulitzer Prize-winning author William Saroyan's 1943 novel, Ithaca is a coming-of-age story about the exuberance of youth, the abruptness of change, the sweetness of life, the sting of death, and the sheer goodness that lives in each and every one of us. Ithaca is the feature directorial debut of actress Meg Ryan, directing from a script written by Erik Jendresen. Adapted from William Saroyan's prize-winning novel titled The Human Comedy. Momentum Pictures will open Meg Ryan's Ithaca in theaters starting September 9th this fall. Interested?
