New trailer for Tamara Drewe

GemmaArterton.jpgI'm not convinced by the idea of Tamara Drewe, but this latest trailer is trying its best to get hold of me and does a good job of telling more of the story while tying itself to the original work it's based on.

It does look rather good, but it all seems a little to light and airy to me, in this latest trailer, where is there something that actually happens?

The film is based on Posy Simmonds' graphic novel which itself is inspired from the classic Thomas Hardy novel Far From the Madding Crowd. Here's a blurb to give you a little more:

Tamara Drewe's present-day English countryside-stocked with pompous writers, rich weekenders, bourgeois bohemians, a horny rock star, and a great many Buff Orpington chickens and Belted Galloway cows-is a much funnier place. When Tamara Drewe sashays back to the bucolic village of her youth, life for the locals is thrown tail over teakettle. Tamara-once an ugly duckling-has been transformed into a devastating beauty (with help from plastic surgery). As infatuations, jealousies, love affairs and career ambitions collide among the inhabitants of the neighboring farmsteads, Tamara sets a contemporary comedy of manners into play using the oldest magic in the book-sex appeal.

So she returns to the village of her youth to deal with her childhood home being sold, and while there comes across a rock star who she interviews for her job back in London, however things start getting out of hand and the country air seems to take over.

Directed by Stephen Frears is always a good sign and then there's the cast to go with it, Gemma Arterton, Dominic Cooper, Roger Allam, Luke Evans, Bill Camp and Tamsin Greig.
