Ellen Page & Kate Mara in Official Trailer for Drama 'My Days of Mercy'
"She's from the other side…" Lionsgate has debuted an official trailer for indie drama My Days of Mercy, formerly known as just Mercy when this premiered at the Toronto Film Festival in 2017. The relationship drama is about the daughter of a man on death row who falls in love with a woman named Mercy, who just so happens to be on the opposite side of her family's political cause. This tests her values as her world begins to unravel. Ellen Page stars as Lucy, and Kate Mara as Mercy, with a cast including Elias Koteas, Amy Seimetz, Brian Geraghty, Beau Knapp, Tonya Pinkins, and Charlie Shotwell. It looks compelling, but it's not a good sign that it has taken two years to get a release and is headed straight to VOD in the end.
Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Tali Shalom-Ezer's My Days of Mercy, direct from YouTube:
Lucy (Ellen Page), the daughter of a man who is on death row, falls in love with Mercy (Kate Mara), a woman on the opposing side of her family’s political cause. As a result, Lucy’s value for truth is tested as her world begins to unravel. My Days of Mercy, formerly titled just Mercy, is directed by Israeli filmmaker Tali Shalom-Ezer, director of the films Surrogate and Princess previously, as well as all the episodes of the TV show "The Psychologist". The screenplay is written by Joe Barton. This originally premiered at the Toronto Film Festival in 2017, and also played at the Palm Springs and Guadalajara Film Festivals last year. Lionsgate will release Shalom-Ezer's My Days of Mercy direct-to-VOD starting April 5th, 2019 in spring.
I like Ellen Page. A lot. I'm happy she's happier after she came out. But, damn, we get it!

Do 'we'? Get it? Or do 'we' want to continue to suppress who she is by not wanting her to make films about people such as herself? It's just that your last sentence really kind of smelled as suppressive. Must we continue to always have films about the lives of 'us' heterosexuals'?

I'm sorry. I am not a supressive person. She should be able to express herself any way she wants to. My bad.

...lol...it's cool. I really didn't think you were from having read a lot of your other posts and comments. It just kind of came across that way. I'm impressed and admire your honesty above. Shows character and I miss that these days. So thank you. Cheers.

You were doing well until you went full homophobe in that last sentence. The first few don't negate the last one. In fact it's quite the opposite. And I bet you'll take back your idiot words when specific screenshots from this movie start making the rounds...

I think this looks a bit too stereotypical especially with the line "She's from the OTHER side..." lol I literally eye-rolled with that line. This looks like a solid attempt, but a miss.

They both look nice, much nicer than this trailer ...

The drama looks palpable, but the music gives it a cheesy vibe.

Maybe it's just me but Ellen Page has not aged well. Can't see her and Kate Mara together.
