"We could've died out here, and it's your fault!" Oscilloscope Labs has debuted an official trailer for Sophia Takal's Always Shine, a drama about two friends from director Sophia Takal. The film stars Mackenzie Davis & Caitlin FitzGerald as actresses who go on a weekend getaway to Big Sur, but end up getting into fights and heated discussions that lead to even crazier problems. The cast includes Lawrence Michael Levine, Alexander Koch, Jane Adams, Khan Baykal and Colleen Camp. Mackenzie Davis won the Best Actress award for this at the Tribeca Film Festival earlier this year. It looks like a strong drama with a crazy side that appears as it plays out. Another film where Mackenzie Davis proves just how talented she is.
Here's the official trailer (+ poster) for Sophia Takal's Always Shine, direct from Oscilloscope's YouTube:
Two friends, both actresses (Halt and Catch Fire's Mackenzie Davis & Masters of Sex's Caitlin FitzGerald), leave Los Angeles for Big Sur embarking on a weekend getaway to reconnect. Once alone, however, the two women's suppressed jealousies and deep-seated resentments bubble to the surface, causing them to lose grasp not just of the true nature of their relationship, but also of their own identities. Always Shine is directed by actress-filmmaker Sophia Takal, her second feature film after directing Green previously. The screenplay is written by Lawrence Michael Levine. This first premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival earlier this year, and also played at the Venice and Denver Film Festivals. Oscilloscope will release Always Shine in select theaters starting December 2nd later this year. For more info, visit the official website. Interested?

Well, you can't be sure. Not being in a line with the norms is another norm these days. But I have no problems with that, I have problem with this being too conformist ...

I don't know. I might check it out sometimes. Although it does look like some contemporary version of stereotype. Regardless the gender dynamic in it ...
