James McAvoy & Sharon Horgan in Lockdown Film 'Together' Trailer
"What I'm trying to say… I sort of love you." Bleecker Street has released an official trailer for a film titled Together, a new comedy from British filmmaker Stephen Daldry (Billy Elliot, The Hours, The Reader). Yet another new pandemic lockdown film, this one addressing a relationship. It is the story of a family, like so many, who found a way to survive - together. This hilarious and heartbreaking story intimately shows two partners forced to re-evaluate themselves and their relationship through the reality of lockdown. Starring James McAvoy and Sharon Horgan, with Samuel Logan. Also via the PR notes: "Daldry brings to life the story of a family going through what we all went through over the last year, an experience that should resonate with moviegoers still shaking off the linger effects of COVID-era quarantine." I still don't know if anyone wants to watch a film like this (especially with the potential of more lockdowns on the horizon) but it doesn't look so bad. Seems like a witty "saying what we've all wanted to say, but were afraid to say" films.
Here's the official trailer (+ poster) for Stephen Daldry's Together, direct from Bleecker's YouTube:
