Watch: Zoe Kazan and Jake Johnson in 'The Pretty One' Indie Trailer

The Quiet One

"I just don't really feel like myself…" Put two up-and-coming young actors together, toss Ron Livingston into the mix, with a comedic plot about loss and mistaken identity, and this is what you get. The trailer for The Pretty One (not to be confused with indie horror The Quiet Ones) has debuted online, featuring Zoe Kazan (seen in Ruby Sparks, The F Word) and Jake Johnson (seen in Safety Not Guaranteed, Drinking Buddies, "New Girl") as the two leads. I'm surprised that they turned a rather morbid plot into something so quirky, but it looks like it might be okay, at the least to see these two talented actors playing off each other.

Here's the first official trailer for Jenée LaMarque's The Pretty One, found via SlashFilm:

The Pretty One is a coming of age comedy about identity and loss and a wallflower who finally learns how to break out of her shell. In a balancing act of a performance, Zoe Kazan portrays a dueling mixture of loss and awakening as twins Laurel and Audrey, most poignantly as a relationship blooms with her new neighbor (Jake Johnson). As Laurel begins to slip into the life she has always wanted but never thought was possible, she must decide between continuing her life as Audrey and revealing herself as the perfect fraud. The film is written & directed by Standford graduate Jenée LaMarque making her feature debut. This premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival last year. The Pretty One arrives in limited theaters February 7th.
