Second Trailer for Richard Linklater's 'Where'd You Go, Bernadette'
"Your hillside just slid into my home" Annapurna Pictures has debuted the second official trailer Richard Linklater's latest film Where'd You Go, Bernadette, based on Maria Semple's novel of the same name. The film is about a woman who runs away, as the title obviously indicates. After her anxiety-ridden mother disappears, 15-year-old Bee does everything to track her down, discovering details about her troubled past in the process. Newcomer Emma Nelson stars as Bee, with an impressive cast including Cate Blanchett as Bernadette, Billy Crudup, Kristen Wiig, James Urbaniak, Judy Greer, Troian Bellisario, Zoe Chao, and Laurence Fishburne. I'm always excited about the new Linklater film, but this one seems a bit too playful and campy, not what I was really expecting though it's not looking that bad. But I'm intrigued nonetheless and still want to see it - maybe there's something meaningful hidden within? Take a look below.
Here's the second trailer (+ poster) for Richard Linklater's Where'd You Go, Bernadette, on YouTube:
