Writer/director Max Winkler’s feature debut Ceremony opens April 8 and we’ve got 4 clips and the trailer. Starring Uma Thurman, Michael Angarano, Lee Pace, Rebecca Mader and Reece Thompson, Ceremony tells the story of a young man (Angarano) who falls in love with an older man’s fiancée (Thurman) while spending a weekend at the older man’s beachside estate. The film premiered to positive reception at the Toronto International Film Festival last fall.
I caught a screening earlier this week and thought it was a great debut and I’m very excited to see what Winkler does next. Hit the jump to watch the clips and trailer and look for my video interviews with the cast the week of April 8.
Here’s the official synopsis for Ceremony:
Sam Davis (Michael Angarano) convinces his former best friend to spend a weekend with him to rekindle their friendship at an elegant beachside estate owned by a famous documentary filmmaker (Lee Pace). But it soon becomes clear that Sam is secretly infatuated with the filmmaker’s fiancee, Zoe (Uma Thurman), and that his true intention is to thwart their impending nuptials. As Sam’s plan begins to unravel, he is forced to realize how complicated love and friendship can be.
