New US Trailer for Indie Drama 'Jump, Darling' with Cloris Leachman
"Your grandmother seems to think you've moved in." Breaking Glass Pics have revealed a new US trailer for a Canadian indie drama titled Jump, Darling, marking the feature directorial debut of filmmaker Philip J. Connell. We also featured the other Canadian trailer a year ago. This first premiered at the 2020 Toronto Inside Out Film Festival, opening in the US this month. It's one of the final films starring the extraordinary Cloris Leachman, who passed away at the age of 94 last year. Thomas Duplessie stars as a rookie drag queen, reeling from a break-up, who escapes to the country, where he finds his grandmother in steep decline yet desperate to stay away from a nursing home. Leachman co-stars with Linda Kash, Jayne Eastwood, Daniel Jun, Mark Caven, and Andrew Bushell. This looks really wonderful, there's something alluring and deeply honest about it. I'm still looking forward to catching up with this film soon - take a look below.
