Alex Wolff Moves to New York City in Trailer for 'The Cat and the Moon'
"We have so much time for all the other serious stuff…" FilmRise has debuted an official trailer for an indie drama titled The Cat and the Moon, marking the feature directorial debut of young actor Alex Wolff (seen in Thoroughbreds, My Friend Dahmer, Jumanji, Hereditary, and Stella's Last Weekend). Whilst his mother seeks treatment in rehab, teenager Nick comes to New York to stay with Cal, a Jazz musician friend of his late father's. During his stay he makes friends who show him what the city has to offer. In addition to writing & directing, Alex Wolff also stars as Nick; he's joined by Mike Epps, Skyler Gisondo, Stefania LaVie Owen, Quincy Chad, Giullian Yao Gioiello, Eric Tabach, Olivia Boreham-Wing, & Tommy Nelson. This looks like it starts slow but gets wild pretty quick, just some kids living it up in the Big Apple.
Here's the official trailer (+ poster) for Alex Wolff's The Cat and the Moon, from FilmRise's YouTube:
