The We and the I

For awhile we've heard various details about Michel Gondry's newest film The We and the I, which will be making its premiere at the Cannes Film Festival this month (stay tuned right here for all of Alex's coverage). Previously we heard that the film would follow a group of unknown actors as a group of school kids who travel into the future by mistake and discover a machine that keeps people younger. Sounded like a Gondry film to us, but with the first trailer just revealed, this looks like a Spike Lee movie, but a bit more uplifting and with a coming-of-age charm at the heart of it. At the very least, it seems refreshing. Watch it!

Here's the first trailer for Michel Gondry's The We and the I, found via Bleeding Cool:

Michel Gondry directs The We and the I from a script that he wrote with Jeffrey Grimshaw and Paul Proch (who created Joel's sketchbook in Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind). It tells a heartfelt and comical story of the final bus ride home for a group of young high school students and graduates. As kids depart the bus for the last time, we get to learn about these graduates as they step into the world -- their love, their conflicts, their despair and their hope. Film premieres at Cannes this month, but has no official release date.
