The first and probably only trailer for the indie dramedy All is Bright has been made available by Anchor Bay Films. It’s got a heartwarming vibe going for it, as Paul Giamatti tackles the role of an ex-con trying like hell to get back on the right path. He’s got a rough road ahead of him but lending a hand as best he can is Paul Rudd. Whether selling Christmas trees in New York City is a good way to do it is debatable but it certainly offers some golden opportunities for self-reflection and those profound conversations meant for a therapist’s office. See what I’m talking about for yourself in the trailer above.
All is Bright stars Paul Rudd, Paul Giamatti, Sally Hawkins, Colman Domingo, Peter Hermann, Amy Landecker, Michael Drayer and Halley Feiffer.
Two French Canadian ne’er-do-wells travel to New York City with a scheme to get rich quick selling Christmas trees. Easygoing charmer Rene (Paul Rudd) clashes with misanthropic ex-con Dennis (Paul Giamatti), whose wife Rene just stole. Still, this odd couple must make an honest go of it in this fresh buddy comedy co-starring Sally Hawkins, by the director of the indie breakout hit “Junebug.”
All is Bright makes a go of it in US theaters on October 4, 2013.
