The first trailer and poster have gone online for Nobody Walks, a drama starring John Krasinski, Rosemarie DeWitt and Olivia Thirlby. From director Ry Russo-Young (You Won’t Miss Me), who co-wrote the picture with Lena Dunham (Girls), Nobody Walks centers on Martine (Thirlby), a young New York artist who moves to LA and stays with a local family while completing her art film. What first appears as an idyllic and happy family soon begins to unravel after Martine’s arrival. The trailer does a nice job at building tension and interest while separating itself from similar fare by what looks to be wide-ranging performances from the principal actors. Hit the jump to check out the first trailer and poster for Nobody Walks.
Here’s the synopsis for Nobody Walks, followed by the first trailer and poster for the film:
Martine, a 23-year-old artist from New York, arrives in Los Angeles to stay in the pool house of a family living in the hip and hilly community of Silver Lake. Peter, the father, has agreed to help Martine complete sound design on her art film as a favor to his wife. Martine innocently enters the seemingly idyllic life of this open-minded family with two kids and a relaxed Southern California vibe. Like a bolt of lightning, her arrival sparks a surge of energy that awakens suppressed impulses in everyone and forces them to confront their own fears and desires.
Exquisitely orchestrated by Ry Russo-Young (You Won’t Miss Mescreened at the 2009 Festival) and cowritten by Lena Dunham (Tiny Furniture), this potent charting of inner urges and sufferings links characters in an intricate dance of lust, denial, and deception. Despite their issues, each comes across as fundamentally human, urging viewers to appraise the characters’ morality by evaluating their own motives. Sexually charged and rigorously composed, Nobody Walks boasts an impressive cast who deliver incisive performances in this absorbing tale.
