"I'd like to be able to tell you everything I am thinking… but I can't." This is a really powerful trailer for this film. IFC has debuted their official US trailer for Andrew Haigh's 45 Years, which won Best Actor and Best Actress at the Berlin Film Festival earlier this year. Those two winners are stars Charlotte Rampling and Tom Courtenay as Kate and Geoff Mercer. This looks absolutely heartbreaking and beautiful all at the same time, and I recommend watching the trailer just to be impressed by these performances right there. Then, of course, go see the film in theaters when it opens in December. From one very positive review: "This story is about whether secrets can be survived, whether the knowing or not knowing is more injurious."
Here's the official US trailer (+ poster) for Andrew Haigh's 45 Years, in high def from Apple:
Winner of the Silver Bear for Best Actress (Charlotte Rampling) and Best Actor (Tom Courtenay) at the Berlin International Film Festival, Andrew Haigh's film is a moving and profound look at marriage and the secrets we keep. There is just one week until Kate Mercer’s (Rampling) 45th wedding anniversary, and the planning for the party is going well. But then a letter arrives for her husband (Courtenay). The body of his first love has been discovered, frozen and preserved in the icy glaciers of the Swiss Alps. By the time the party is upon them, five days later, there may not be a marriage left to celebrate. 45 Years is written & directed by Andrew Haigh, of the film Weekend, "Looking" and a few shorts previously. It's based on a short story by David Constantine. IFC will release 45 Years in select theaters starting December 23rd this year.
Some great stuff in the trailer and I'm interested in seeing the movie. But not a fan of the odd song choice, which I think detracts from the trailer.

I don't think it's a weird song choice, but it is a weird volume choice.

Charlotte Rampling proves that being an actress without a fame still might mean to be a known and good ...

So good. This looks so good. I love watching older, veteran actors carve up scenes. They make it the craft look so effortless.
