A Boy. A Girl. A Dream. Trailer

"Do you understand how important this is, and how important art is?" Samuel Goldwyn Films has debuted an official trailer for an indie romantic drama titled A Boy. A Girl. A Dream., from writer/director Qasim Basir. The film premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, and it plays out as one-long-take following two people who meet in Los Angeles and go on a "thrilling and emotional journey" together, a bit like Richard Linklater's Before films. On the night of the 2016 Presidential election, Cass played by Omari Hardwick, an L.A. club promoter, randomly meets Frida played by Meagan Good, a Midwestern visitor. She challenges him to revisit his broken dreams - while he pushes her to discover hers. This looks so good, I'm a bit sad I missed it at Sundance, but happy I have a chance to catch up with it soon. Take a look below.

Here's the official trailer (+ poster) for Qasim Basir's A Boy. A Girl. A Dream., direct from YouTube:

Man...I'm kind of confused...dude takes it too far with girl, girl brushes him off, but then is drawn back to him because he saves her from a gang attack? That took me right out of it. The rest looked promising, but dang man, how old is that story?!? MY HERO. ugh.

Bold idea, but can Good really carry this film? I don't know.

Yeah, the title is really one big miss. But, as for the rest, I hope it does something good. Although, it does look confusing...

It seems cheesy but I can sense some real heart in this.

At first blush, I think it looked interesting. Second, I felt it went beyond what I expected. Agree Brandon Cole. I sense a heart here not previously seen in recent past with relationship dramas.

And the title is so bad. Like starting the first inning already down by a couple runs...
