"Maybe you should stop going to strangers' funerals." Sony Pictures Classics has debuted a new theatrical trailer for Gus Van Sant's Restless, the charming, quirky, quaint indie drama starring Mia Wasikowska and Henry Hopper. A few of you may remember seeing a trailer last year, as we posted one in October, but the film was pushed back to September this year, so after premiering at Cannes, it's now time for the marketing push. I actually really enjoyed this film (read my review) but it's definitely quaint and if you're not a fan of Gus Van Sant, don't expect to be into it. I also love this new poster for it. Just a solid indie flick.

Tells the story of a 16-year-old terminally ill girl (Mia Wasikowska) who falls for a boy (Henry Hopper) who likes to attend funerals and their encounters with the ghost of a Japanese kamikaze pilot from WWII.
Restless is directed by Oscar nominated American filmmaker Gus Van Sant, of Drugstore Cowboy, My Own Private Idaho, Good Will Hunting, Finding Forrester, Elephant, Paranoid Park, Milk and many other films and music videos previously. The screenplay was written by first-time writer Jason Lew. After quite a few delays, Sony Pictures Classics is finally bringing Restless to theaters starting on September 16th this fall.
I'll check this with my good lady wife. I'd quite like to speak to a Kamikaze pilot ghost, apart from dressing incredibly well, I'd like to hear about his mindset before impact. Probably quick drunk I imagine.

"Art" kids, and cause-head liberals are psyched.

He looked like Andy Warhol. Isn't that ghost shot to death in Letters from Iwo Jima?
