Poor Boy Trailer

"The world is strange…" Indican Pictures has released a trailer for a funky indie film titled Poor Boy, from filmmaker Robert Scott Wildes. This actually premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival and New Hampshire Film Festival back in 2016, but it has been waiting for a release and is finally going to hit a few cinemas this year. Poor Boy is about two misfit redneck brothers who run various cash scams in the desert dreaming of getting out. When the bank threatens to repossess their junky home in the Nevada desert, they "cook up an epic con to finally leave their dusty town behind and sail off into the sunset." Lou Taylor Pucci and Dov Tiefenbach star as the two brothers, and the cast includes Justin Chatwin, Amanda Crew, Pat Healy, Amy Ferguson, Dale Dickey, plus Michael Shannon as a sad rodeo clown. This looks a bit too insane.

Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Robert Scott Wildes' Poor Boy, direct from Vimeo (via TMB):

Looks more like a visual treat and less like something good ...

It's like Harmony Korine had a baby with George Miller and they made this film. Not really impressed with the trailer. Could be a classic case of all style and no substance methinks...

Looks nice. Probably just watch to see Michael in clown makeup though.
