One of the films I’ve been most curious about in the Toronto International Film Festival line-up is Nick Cassavetes‘ indie drama Yellow. After showing off some stills, the first trailer has arrived today, which includes tons of crazy imagery from freefallin’ women to flooded classrooms to chain-smoking clowns. His last feature, My Sister’s Keeper, was about as mild and predictable as they come, so I look forward to him changing things up here.
Toplined by Sienna Miller and described as a “wildly inventive and visually dazzling head-trip,” the drama follows “a young substitute teacher who escapes from her drudging everyday life by fantasizing bizarre parallel realities.” Check out the trailer below for the film toplined by Sienna Miller and also starring Gena Rowlands, Ray Liotta, David Morse, Lucy Punch, Max Theoriot, Riley Keough, Daveigh Chase, Heather Wahlquist and Melanie Griffith.
Yellow premieres at TIFF.
