Joaquin Phoenix in First Trailer for Mike Mills' New Film 'C'mon C'mon'
"To visit planet Earth you will have to be born as a human child." A24 has unveiled the official trailer for the latest film from acclaimed filmmaker Mike Mills (director of Thumbsucker, Beginners, 20th Century Women) titled C'mon C'mon, which just premiered at the 2021 Telluride Film Festival this past weekend. It's also playing at the New York Film Festival next. It's presented in black & white, the film follows a radio journalist who embarks on a a cross-country trip with his young nephew, forging an unexpected bond on their journey. Described by critics as a heartwarming and tender film about how hard it is to be a parent, this looks like another lovely feature from a very talented filmmaker. The film's small cast features Joaquin Phoenix, Gaby Hoffmann, and Woody Norman. It's set to open in US theaters starting in November later this year, and I am very much looking forward to it. This is a beautiful first look - give it a watch below.
