One of the films that will premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival this September is Daydream Nation, from writer/director Michael Goldblach. Kat Dennings, Josh Lucas, Reece Thompson, Andie MacDowell, and Natasha Calis star in the coming-of-age story in which a teenage girl (Dennings) moves to a rural town (currently plagued by a serial killer) and sparks up an affair with a teacher (Lucas). Check out the trailer after the jump.
Here’s the official synopsis:
In this darkly comedic coming-of-age story, a teenage girl moves from the city to a small town, only to find she has absolutely nothing in common with the stoner-hicks who populate her high school. So Caroline Wexler begins an affair with the one person she connects with: her handsome young teacher. But with a serial killer on the loose and townsfolk disappearing around them, their relationship takes a turn for the worse—and when Caroline breaks it off in favor of a boy her age, the rejection makes her teacher crazy, driving the film towards its surreal, heartbreaking, wildly romantic conclusion.
