I really don’t know what to call this. It’s probably a trailer, but it acts like a teaser. There’s no dialogue and after watching it you’ll probably have no idea what the movie is about (besides Oscar nominations). But this is likely a trailer.
This trailer (and the movie) is about getting Colin Firth and Julian Moore Oscars. We can pretend that it’s an art house movie, or perhaps a passion project from the director Tom Ford. But for those of us who aren’t in L.A. or New York or Venice or Cannes this is simply a beautifully shot movie that will likely win some Oscars. I don’t think that these two don’t deserve Academy Awards, I absolutely love Julianne Moore. I’m quite indifferent towards Colin Firth (mostly because I’m not a 30 year old woman, I have heard that “that man can wear a sweater”, but he just seems to play the same grim character in all his movies. Maybe that’s the point, maybe this movie is supposed to change that.
I have to say that this is probably the best looking trailer I’ve seen in quite some time. I probably won’t see the movie, it’ll be very hard to find a theatre that will show it, but the trailer is visually spectacular.
