Unexpected Trailer

"You're just going to give up now?" Oh wow, this looks really good! The Film Arcade has debuted a trailer for Unexpected, a delightful Sundance premiere this year directed by Kris Swanberg (Joe Swanberg's wife). It earned some solid buzz, but we unfortunately missed it here, thankfully some of our friends show up quoted in this trailer. Cobie Smulders stars as Samantha, a teacher at an inner-city Chicago high school who ends up unexpectedly pregnant, and befriends a high school student who is also unexpectedly pregnant. It looks like a charmer, seriously, I kinda really want to see this. Gail Bean stars as the student, and the cast includes Anders Holm and Elizabeth McGovern. Give this a watch, you might be surprised.

Here's the first official trailer for Kris Swanberg's Unexpected, found on YouTube:

Unexpected Poster

Samantha Abbott (Smulders) is a dedicated and passionate teacher at an inner-city Chicago high school. Just as she is coming to terms with her school closing, Samantha faces some life-changing and unexpected news: she is pregnant. After breaking the news to her live-in boyfriend John and opinionated mother, Samantha learns that one of her most promising students, Jasmine (Bean), has landed in a similar but very different situation. As the women navigate their ambitions for the future, Samantha and Jasmine forge an unlikely friendship that will challenge their perspectives and leave a lasting impact on one another. Unexpected is directed by Kris Swanberg, from a script by Kris Swanberg & Megan Mercier. The Film Arcade will release Unexpected in limited theaters on July 24th this summer.

I still can't believe she (Cobie) has breast cancer. G.W.S. (get well soon)!
