Ciaran Hinds & Maïwenn in Trailer for Comedy 'The Man in the Hat'
"There's nothing harder to find than lost love." Gravitas Ventures has debuted an official trailer for a British comedy called The Man in the Hat, which already opened in the fall in the UK last year. Now arriving in the US this May. The Man in the Hat takes us on a journey through France in a Fiat 500 accompanied by a framed photograph of an unknown woman. He is pursued by five angry men in a Citroën Dyane… Why are they chasing him? And how can he shake them off? Only way to find out is to watch! Ciarán Hinds stars as "The Man In The Hat", joined by Stephen Dillane, Maïwenn, Sasha Hails, Muna Otaru, Brigitte Roüan, Xavier Laurent, & Claire Tran as "The Storyteller". This looks adorable! And gorgeous, all that French countryside. Oh my. I also like that this trailer is dialogue free, selling the story with all the imagery.
