Modern Life is Rubbish Trailer

"Where's all this coming from?" Cleopatra has unveiled an official trailer for an indie romantic drama titled Modern Life is Rubbish, which played at the Edinburgh and Hawaii Film Festivals last year. The film is about a young couple on the verge of breaking-up. Brought together by their shared love of music, initially it was "opposites attract", but this didn't work for them long-term. Making the difficult decision to separate, they must split their prized music library. "But the sound track that defined their relationship keeps pulling them back together." Aww. Modern Life is Rubbish stars Freya Mavor and Josh Whitehouse as Natalie and Liam, with a cast including Tom Riley, Ian Hart, and Jessie Cave. This seems like a very smart, emotionally devastating look at modern love - and how complex it is. I also quite like the poster - see below.

Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Daniel Jerome Gill's Modern Life is Rubbish, from YouTube:

Brought together by their shared love of music, ten years on Liam and Natalie are at breaking point. In their case, opposites attract but don't necessarily work long-term. Making the difficult decision to separate, they must split their prized music library. But the sound track that defined their relationship keeps pulling them back together. Modern Life is Rubbish is directed by filmmaker Daniel Jerome Gill, making his feature directorial debut after working as an assistant director on films for years. The screenplay is written by Philip Gawthorne. This first premiered at the Edinburgh and Hawaii Film Festivals last year. Cleopatra Ent will release Modern Life is Rubbish in select theaters starting on April 27th later this month.

Yeah, modern life is full of narcissistic people who only want to succeed and be rich. No? All they want is love? Really? What a profound message from this film ...

Hmmm. I tried watching this the other day. It's a bit too mushy for my liking, however it did have some nice real moments. Their reason for breaking up is good and sends the lead on a good emotional journey of redemption - BUT it is all completely undermined by the saccharine parts and the unbelievable ending.
