The Parts You Lose Trailer

"Storm clouds may be brewing, but sunny days lie ahead…" Samuel Goldwyn Films has debuted an official trailer for an indie crime drama called The Parts You Lose, the latest film from filmmaker Christopher Cantwell (Our Footloose Remake). This small town thriller is about a deaf boy from a North Dakota town who befriends a potentially dangerous fugitive. The boy takes him in and helps him recover from an injury, but the cops are starting to close in. Danny Murphy plays Wesley, co-starring with Aaron Paul, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Scoot McNairy, Darcy Fehr, and Stefanie Wiens. This hasn't shown up at any festivals and looks like your average criminal-on-the-run drama, with a few small tweaks to the usual story.

Here's the official trailer (+ poster) for Christopher Cantwell's The Parts You Lose, from SGF's YouTube:

The Parts You Lose Film

Produced by Aaron Paul, Mark Johnson, and Tom Williams; co-produced by Ian Dimerman and Brendon Sawatzky. This hasn't premiered at any film festivals or elsewhere, as far as we know.

The story is probably mediocre just like the execution of it. But it might make an enjoyable viewing at some lazy point ...

Highly doubtful, shiboleth as you're on the money with your assessment.

Yeah, I know Bo. When I say lazy it usually means late night, I can't sleep and I have nothing to do. And, of course, the plan is to fall asleep before the end. A lot of film stuff nowadays falls in that category. They have to have some purpose, right? Cheers ...

Snow in N.Dakota?! Haha...This looks solid. Paul is due to turn in a performance worthy of the accolades he garnered as Pinkman.
