While Naomi Watts has a handful of stellar entries in her career, 2013 has exactly been kind to the actress. We can’t exactly blame her taking part in the ensemble-filled disaster Movie 43 at the start of the year, but her steamy Sundance drama Adore recently hit theaters to little fanfare. November will now bring two dramas that are arriving with muted buzz thus far and today we have new trailers for both.
First up, her Princess Diana biopic recently premiered in London, where it was utterly lambasted (currently garnering 3% on Rotten Tomatoes). Directed by Oliver Hirschbiegel, this new trailer has a bit of momentum, but looks like your standard, cloying Oscar fare.

Also starring Matt Dillon, we said it “may be too bleak for mainstream audiences, but it’s a bold, fresh and memorable look at just how close some are to the poverty line.” Check out both new trailers below.
Diana arrives on November 1st and Sunlight Jr. hits theaters two weeks later, on November 15th.

Writing about the films of Robert Bresson usually begins by informing reader that his films must be discussed through a trance of hushed tones and quiet veneration. There is no room for rushed judgement or quick-witted observations; Bresson makes Serious Art, as opposed to Hollywood directors who do not. There are the key phrases to […]
With a seemingly endless amount of streaming options — not only the titles at our disposal, but services themselves — we believe it’s our duty to highlight the recent, recommended titles that have recently hit the interwebs. Every week, one will be able to see the cream of the crop (or perhaps some simply interesting picks) of […]
