Tatiana Maslany & Jay Duplass in First Trailer for Indie Film 'Pink Wall'
"Just trying to go back to the moment… where it changed for us." Oh boy, this looks heartbreaking. The first trailer has debuted for an indie relationship drama titled Pink Wall, which is premiering at the 2019 SXSW Film Festival in March. Pink Wall is the directorial debut of Welsh actor Tom Cullen, who recruited Tatiana Maslany and Jay Duplass to star as a couple looking back on their experiences together. The description says it's made up of only six scenes across six years, "six moments that shaped the relationship of Jenna and Leon." The music in this trailer is what makes it really stand out, there's so much emotion and so much meaning in these somber melodies. It reminds me a bit of Drake Doremus' films, but it seems to be unique in its own way. Put this film on your schedule if you're going to SXSW, keep an eye on it if you're not.
Six scenes. Six years. Six moments that shaped the relationship of Jenna (Maslany) and Leon (Duplass). Pink Wall examines what defines us, the pressures of gender expectations, and our perpetual struggle between life and ambition. Pink Wall is both written and directed by Welsh actor Tom Cullen, making his feature directorial debut after producing one film previously. This is the first time he has directed anything. This will be premiering at the SXSW Film Festival coming up in March. Produced by Maggie Monteith for Dignity Film Finance and Talland Films, and Jamie Adams and Richard Ellis for Two Flowers And A King. The film is still seeking international distribution, so no release dates are set. Stay tuned. First impression?
Two great actors. Looks very good.

No thanks. Don't care much for the two leads, especially the guy. This looks like one of those dorky 'couple in crisis' things that is more than over done. I'll pass.

It looks cute to be honest.

Films like this almost have become a genre. They often work if you're in the mood for them ...

I'm intrigued, but I'm getting really tried of these movies about these relationships always starting out great, but then dissolving into chaos. "WHERE DID IT GO WRONG?!?" So...in most cases....it can never go right? I understand you have to have DRAMA in a drama...but dang man, what I wouldn't give for just an relationship drama that explores the good, the bad and then the compromising to maintain good. Which is truly what marriage/relationships is about : self-sacrifice. So acting, direction looks solid, it's the story that I'm not crazy about.
