Fandango Movieclip Channel describe it as
As a man contemplates moving to a new state with his wife for her graduate program, an old flame – a woman who often changes identities – reenters his life at a birthday dinner party.
What the trailer tells us
The dull piano tones keeps the trailer moving smoothly alone for two minutes however it does not really give any indication or idea of how the old flame often changes identities. We know she was presumed dead. I’m guessing the gaps will be filled when the film is released but you can already tell the performance from Rachel Weisz will be an enthralling one. She is clearly the lead even though the trailer holds her up to the surface slowly.
The texture of the trailer was mostly dark – not many scenes that appeared light or was set in the day so we can expect a mysterious thriller that keeps to a similar tone.
Saying that the trailer was not that engaging as you are desperately trying to find out more in a short space of time but it remains interesting enough to keep an eye out for future trailers. This thriller looks to offer twists and turns and the mystery surrounding the female lead will be fascinating. Will she destroy lives? Will she offer people help? How does she change identity?
I am sure all this will be answered and more when the full length feature is released but for now we have this.
