The first trailer for Sundance entry Emanuel and the Truth about Fishes is now online.  Kaya Scodelario (Wuthering Heights) plays the titular character, a troubled girl who obsesses over a new neighbor (Jessica Biel) that looks just like her dead mother: “In offering to babysit her newborn, Emanuel unwittingly enters a fragile, fictional world, of which she becomes the gatekeeper.”  The tone chills, I am intrigued by the hints of the  “fragile, fictional world,” and I like hearing Scodelario try on her American accent.  But whenever Emanuel is released, I will go see it to find out how a young girl gets such an unusual name beyond the thematic resonance of “God is with us.”

Alfred Molina, Frances O’Connor, Jimmi Simpson, and Aneurin Barnard co-star in Francesca Gregorini‘s second feature.  Watch the trailer after the jump.

Here’s the Sundance synopsis:

Emanuel, a troubled girl, becomes preoccupied with her mysterious, new neighbor, who bears a striking resemblance to her dead mother. In offering to babysit her newborn, Emanuel unwittingly enters a fragile, fictional world, of which she becomes the gatekeeper.
