New US Teaser Trailer for 'Falling' Film Directed by Viggo Mortensen
"I know what you're trying to do…" "I'm trying to help you, Dad." Quiver Distribution has unveiled a teaser trailer for the indie drama Falling, the directorial debut of actor Viggo Mortensen. This premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, and we featured an international trailer a few months ago. The US release is now set for February (including VOD) for anyone interested in watching. In addition to writing and directing the film, Mortensen also stars as John, who lives with his husband in Los Angeles. When his raging homophobic father begins to spiral into dementia, he tries to convince him to leave his ranch home and move in with him. But they often end up fighting. Lance Henriksen co-stars as Willis, his expletive-loving father, and Terry Chen plays his husband Eric. The film's cast also includes Sverrir Gudnason, Laura Linney, Hannah Gross, and in a small role, David Cronenberg. Not a big fan of this film at all.
