First Trailer for Richard Linklater's Film 'Where'd You Go, Bernadette'
"She didn't just vanish!" Annapurna Pictures has released the fun, first trailer for Richard Linklater's latest film, called Where'd You Go, Bernadette, adapted from Maria Semple's novel of the same name. The film is about a missing woman, as the title hints at. After her anxiety-ridden mother disappears, 15-year-old Bee does everything she can to track her down, discovering details about her troubled past in the process. Newcomer Emma Nelson stars as Bee, with an impressive ensemble cast including Cate Blanchett, Billy Crudup, Kristen Wiig, James Urbaniak, Judy Greer, Troian Bellisario, Zoe Chao, and Laurence Fishburne. This looks like a more mainstream flick from Linklater, with some charm and wit and mystery, of course. I'm not sure what to make of this from this trailer, but I'm still interested because it is Linklater.
Here's the first trailer (+ poster) for Richard Linklater's Where'd You Go, Bernadette, from YouTube:
