Official Trailer for 'Palmer' Starring Justin Timberlake & June Squibb
"Truth is – I haven't felt like I was good at anything… until Sam." Apple TV+ has debuted an official trailer for an indie drama titled Palmer, the latest film by actor / filmmaker Fisher Stevens. Former high school football star Eddie Palmer went from hometown hero to convicted felon, earning himself 12 years in a state penitentiary. He returns home to Louisiana, and moves back in with Vivian, the grandmother who raised him. While trying to keep his head down and rebuild a quiet life for himself, Palmer is haunted by memories of his glory days and the suspicious eyes of his small town community. He befriends an outcast boy from a trouble home, but Eddie's past threatens to ruin his new life & family. Justin Timberlake stars as Eddie, joined by June Squibb, Juno Temple, Alisha Wainwright, Dean Winters, and Ryder Allen. This looks very good, a heartfelt story of perseverance and goodness in a place where there isn't much of either.
Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Fisher Stevens' Palmer, direct from Apple's YouTube:
