Lost River looks like an intriguing and somewhat strange movie, which isn’t too surprising for what is Ryan Gosling’s directorial debut. There’s still a lot of people who are keen to see it, even if it’s been getting rather mixed reports from film festivals.
Now the first proper trailer has arrived, so we can take a look at what all the fuss is about.
The film has been described as being ‘Set against the surreal dreamscape of a vanishing city, BILLY, a single mother of two, is swept into a macabre and dark fantasy underworld while BONES, her eighteen-year-old son, discovers a secret road leading to an underwater town. Both Billy and Bones must dive deep into the mystery, if their family is to survive.’
It’s all a little peculiar, but the likes of Christina Hendricks, Iain De Caestecker, Eva Mendes, Saoirse Ronan and Matt Smith certainly seem to be having fun with it.
Lost River will reach the US on April 10th and the UK on April 24th.
