Light From Light Trailer

"People think ghosts are scary… I think it would be wonderful if they were real." Sure, that would be nice. Grasshopper Film has debuted an official trailer for an indie drama title Light From Light, which initially premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year. It also went on to play at the Sarasota, Montclair, Oak Cliff, and San Diego Film Festivals throughout the year. This is the film that is being described as the "unscary" ghost story film, about a man who recently lost his wife who feels like her presence is still around in his house. He hires a single mother and local part-time paranormal investigator to determine whether there really is a ghost or not. It's one of the few dramatic supernatural films that have ever been made, and it's very good, a tender look at the emotional struggles of still-alive human beings. Starring Marin Ireland and Jim Gaffigan, with Josh Wiggins, Atheena Frizzell, David Cale, & Rhoda Griffis. Take a look.

Here's the official trailer (+ poster) for Paul Harrill's Light From Light, from Grasshopper's YouTube:

Gifted with sometimes-prophetic dreams and a lifelong interest in the paranormal, Sheila (Marin Ireland) is asked to investigate a potential haunting at a Tennessee farmhouse. It’s there she meets Richard (Jim Gaffigan), a recent widower who believes his wife may still be with him. The investigation that ensues — which eventually pulls in Shelia’s son, Owen and his classmate Lucy — forces them to confront the mysteries of their own lives. Light From Light is both written and directed by American filmmaker Paul Harrill, his second feature after directing Something, Anything previously, as well as a few short films. Featuring original music by Adam Granduciel and Jon Natchez of the band called The War on Drugs. This first premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year. Grasshopper Film will release Harrill's Light From Light in select US theaters starting November 1st this fall. For more info, visit their official website.

Gaffigan, who is my favorite stand-up comic, has been really busy making movies recently...this is the one I want to see.

One too many light in this. Other than that, this could be good little thing during tired evening ...

Looks like an interesting little film. I love seeing comedians in dramatic roles, they're always really good (to my recollection).

Not all, but there have been a good handful in recent memory. Any episode of Better Call Saul will do.

I've been a Mr Show fan for decades, so seeing Odenkirk in that role was a nice surprise.

...not to mention Michael McKean. Both crushing it.

Oh god, you're right. He's fantastic!

Looks great. Gaffigan's recent acting penchant has been surprising and much appreciated.

I like this title (for a change) but it looks so sleepy that I'm not sure if it will have an ending, it will just take on of those artistic stoppings that infuriate me. I'm growing tiresome of Gaffigan's stand-up so I might as well appreciate his dramas. He's dabbled a bit, this looks up to that par.

"I like this title (for a change) but it looks so sleepy that I'm not sure if it will have an ending, it will just take on of those artistic stoppings that infuriate me." this is exactly what i was thinking and worried about - investing the time to watch a movie that doesn't really end or leave the viewer with an understanding as to what did (or will) happen.

I dig this. Could be a thoughtful sleeper hit.
