New Restless Trailer Online
Gus Van Sant targets the Twi-hards

New Restless Trailer Online

There are two Gus Van Sants. One makes abstruse and fascinating oddities like Gerry and Last Days and Paranoid Park, and the other is a bit more commercial and brought us Good Will Hunting and Milk. Restless looks like it's been directed by the latter, and a new trailer is online over at Yahoo.

The fact that it might be heading for a wider audience than Elephant doesn't mean it's not peculiar-sounding on paper though. Details were sketchy when the project was first announced, and you can kind of see why, given that it's a teen romance, but one that involves a terminally ill cancer patient and a funeral-crasher whose best friend is the ghost of a Japanese kamikaze pilot. 

We might expect a blub-fest, but weirdly, the trailer makes it seem rather feel-good. Possibly that's down to the music, and possibly it's the sweet-looking performaces from Henry Hopper and Alice in Wonderland's Mia Wasikowska.

Ryo Kase plays the ghost, and there's support from Schuyler Fisk and Jane Adams. Empire's Damon Wise saw it at Cannes. For the rest of us, the release date is October 21.
