Tiny Furntiture

Terrance the Trailer Trasher – @@

Looks like a well-made film for a low-budget indie with no names. Decent dialogue. Peopled by refreshingly real, non-Hollywood types. Seems to give an accurate sense of what the movie is: a thoughtful but meandering coming-of-age story of a post-graduate girl. Unfortunately, it comes off as a doesn’t-even-wannabe chick version of “The Graduate.” The trailer gives me no confidence that the movie’s got what it takes to maintain audience interest without any “high concept” plot complications. I’ll pass for now.

Michael the Moviegoer – @@@@

If the movie lives up to the critic quotes they used (“unnervingly honest”) then it looks like it could be one of my faves of this year. The cast is horribly unattractive, but the cinematography is far better than most recent low-budget indies. This looks like it’s going to be indie-hip instead of indie-yawn. But I can’t think of a single moment in this trailer that could remind you of “The Graduate.” What drug cocktail are you having?

Terry’s Rebuttal:

Um, gee, Michael, let me think and see if I can come up with a reason why one might try to connect two movies that are both about a college graduate coming back home still not knowing what they want to do with their lives. If all it takes is non-crappy cinematography and a few hype-y quotes to make you anticipate a favorite, I wonder why movies bother to try to tell stories.

Opens in a few tiny theatres on November 12, 2010.

Tomorrow we’ll travel to a tiny town in England for a trailer about the UK’s equal rights movement.
