Gus Van Sant knows how to direct drama and Restless appears to be yet another in the familiar mold. Of course, this one involves a ghost to mix things up a bit, but by and large the film seems relatively understated. Now we have a brand new trailer for the film and while I’m not sold yet, I am interested. This is the first writing credit for actor Jason Lew. Restless stars Mia Wasikowska (Alice in Wonderland) and I can’t wait to see her in more films. Hit the jump for the trailer and synopsis. Restless opens on January 28th, 2011.
The trailer is brought to you by Moviefone.
Here is the synopsis for the film.
“From Imagine Entertainment comes a powerful and emotional coming of age story, a remarkable film told with honesty and originality that will leave audiences moved. In the film, two outsiders, both shaped by the circumstances that have brought them together, forge a deep and lasting love. Directed by Gus Van Sant, one of the most astute observers of people living life on the edge, comes a take on friendship and young love as engaging and true as it is provocative and stirring.”
