The Motel Life

Following a debut at the Rome Film Festival last year, and appearances in Chicago and Philadelphia, the new drama The Motel Life is finally heading to theaters. Emile Hirsch and Stephen Dorff star in the film as two brothers living in Reno, Nevada, trying to hide evidence of a fatal accident one of them caused. While the plot is pretty basic, what really makes this one stick out is the inclusion of animated segments for parts of the story. In the trailer, they seem a little out of place, but maybe they work better in the context of the film's story presentation. Also, Dakota Fanning continues to grow up before our eyes. Watch below!

Here's the first trailer for Gabe & Alan Polsky's The Motel Life, originally from Yahoo:

The Motel Life is directed by Gabe & Alan Polsky and written by Micah Fitzerman-Blue & Noah Harpster, based on the novel of the same name by Willy Vlautin. The story explores the intense bond between two brothers (Stephen Dorff & Emile Hirsch) living on the fringes of Reno, Nevada. They grew up depending on each other and their big imaginations to escape their transient life. When one of the brothers is involved in a fatal accident, it forces them to choose between running or facing reality. It is a story of brotherhood, shared dreams and the redemptive power of hope. The film hits theaters and VOD November 8th. Look good?
