Matt Bomer & John Carroll Lynch in Trans Love Story 'Anything' Trailer
"I don't know a lot of things, but I know what it means to love someone…" Paladin has released an official trailer for an indie drama titled Anything, from writer/director Timothy McNeil. Anything is a story about the infinite possibility of love. Matt Bomer plans a transgender woman who meets a middle-aged man who moved to Los Angeles after his wife's death, played by John Carroll Lynch. They strike up a relationship, and together experience the turbulence and challenges that come with falling for each other. The film's cast includes Maura Tierney, Margot Bingham, Michael Boatman, and Tanner Buchanan. This looks like a compelling, modern look at the complexities of romance, putting a trans relationship front and center. It's particularly impressive to see how talented Bomer really is. Take a look and let us know your thoughts.
Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Timothy McNeil's Anything, direct from YouTube:
Anything is an unconventional romance about Earl, a middle-aged widower who moves to Los Angeles to be with family, and who asserts his independence by renting an apartment in a sketchy neighborhood full of “colorful” characters. Most colorful of all is Frida, his transgender next door neighbor who happens to find Earl—the quintessential Southern Gentleman—just as exotic as he finds her. Forming a relationship that is at once both unexpected and inevitable, this mismatched pair give each other much-needed trust, respect… and more. Anything is both written and directed by American filmmaker Timothy McNeil, his second feature film, along with some acting work. This first premiered at the Los Angeles Film Festival last year. Paladin will open McNeil's Anything in select theaters starting May 11th this summer. Who's curious?

Maura Tierney is an actress we don't see enough of... This looks solid...

Yeah, why not. Stories like this should question what we think about people and maybe to make us think if we are able to be people like the ones we see in the story itself ...

"The proverbial 'they'" What, is this the deep south in the 30's or what? Just who is "they" Bo?

This looks really special. I have to admit to a little fatigue with identity and "issue" films, but this doesn't seem at all pandering. The performances seem excellent, I'm interested.

The performances look genuine, however, the subject matter does not interest me.
