There will have been nearly 18 months between its Sundance premiere and domestic opening, but that may be no fault of the Australian thriller Wish You Were Here. Despite a mixed reception at Sundance, word out of Oz was actually quite warm — a bunch of awards winds being the biggest sign of quality, you could argue — and with a wider crowd embracing it more significantly, now might be high time to grant further attention.
That’s because a trailer for Wish You Were Here‘s domestic opening has arrived, and it, thankfully, doesn’t at all impact the idea. A pretty nice collection of moments on its own, this is also a different side of the story first presented all the way back in December of 2011 — bigger scope and bigger ideas included, with Kieran Darcy-Smith‘s eye for strong photography tying things together.
Watch the trailer below (via ThePlaylist):
Starring Joel Edgerton, Teresa Palmer, Felicity Price, and Antony Starr, Wish You Were Here will get a limited release on June 7th.
