First Trailer for IN OUR NATURE Starring Zach Gilford, Jena Malone, John Slattery, and Gabrielle Union

The first trailer for In Our Nature has been released in advance of the March 10 premiere at SXSW.  The indie drama features two of our favorite actors from two of the best dramas of the last decade in Mad Men‘s John Slattery and Friday Night LightsZach Gilford, starring alongside Jena Malone and Gabrielle Union.  Plus, the premise is believable and fraught with potential: Gilford takes his girlfriend (Malone) up to the family country house for a romantic weekend, but runs into his estranged father (Slattery), who shows up with his own young girlfriend (Union).  From there, the trailer fails to separate itself from the pack of indie dramas about troubled families that precede In Our Nature.  (Pretty sure there’s a scene where the two young leads scream their troubles away.)  But trailers typically don’t accomplish that even if the film does, so I remain hopeful for the feature debut of writer/director Brian Salverson.

Hit the jump for the trailer and a few screencaps.

Via Deadline:

Here’s the SXSW synospis:

A portrait of two couples at a crossroads. What was supposed to be a romantic getaway for two young lovers, turns into an uncomfortable confrontation when the young man’s estranged father shows up … with his own girlfriend. As their collisions mount, the weekend transforms into a major turning point for each of them.

And finally, the screencaps.  Given my interests, it’s heavy on Slattery.  (Look!  He’s laughing and wearing a hat in a kayak!)  But I still have a hard time getting past seeing the actor with a modern haircut and wardrobe outside of his iconic Mad Men character.
