After getting a wild unofficial trailer for The Details, edited by director Jacob Aaron Estes himself, I half-expected a much tamer version to arrive with the theatrical one. But thankfully The Weinstein Company VOD offshoot Radius-TWC did nothing of the sort, delivering a equally enticing look at this dark comedy starring Tobey Maguire.
While we weren’t fans of it at Sundance, where it premiered nearly two years ago, I’m personally eager to check out what’s in store for this one. It was rumored that Harvey Weinstein was recutting the film, so perhaps, not unlike their recently released Bachelorette, the final product is much better. Check it out below for the film also starring Elizabeth Banks, Laura Linney, Dennis Haysbert, Kerry Washington and Ray Liotta.
Tobey Maguire and Elizabeth Banks play a struggling married couple who, already struggling with issues like infidelity and whether they should stay married, see their lives further complicated by ravenous raccoons burrowing under the sod in their back yard. A disagreement over how to dispatch the pests creates a chain reaction of mishaps.
The Details hits VOD on October 5th, before a November 2nd release.

What dictated these labels […]

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 […]
