Waiting for Forever trailer shows glimmer of hope
A trailer for Waiting Forever arrived online yesterday, a film It's directed by the actor and director James Keach and starring Rachel Bilson, Tom Sturridge, Richard Jenkins and Blythe Danner, and while there was a slight glimmer of hope in the trailer with a couple of moments which suggest something different, the rest of the film and the blurb suggests the usual romance tale.
It looks like we're going to see the slightly odd character who is a bit of a misfit try to gain the heart of the beautiful woman who has her rather normal life on track, it would seems she's out of his league, but I'm sure by the end of the film she sees the beauty in being different and ends up with him.
Yet there are a couple of moments in the film where you think something different might happen, where you strive for something different to happen, and when the glimmer is there the hope is up, then it just fades away as quickly as it grew.
One of the scenes I'm talking about is when Rachel Bilson's character gets rather strung out about Tom Sturridge's character chasing after her, and for a moment things seem a little too intense, however it quickly turns back to that old story.
To add to his woes, she's even due to marry someone else, someone traditionally good looking and probably rather successful and mainstream too, the opposite of him and his life.
Here's the blurb for Waiting for Forever:
Best friends while they were growing up, Emma (Rachel Bilson) and Will (Tom Sturridge) lost touch a long time ago as far as she knows. To Will, Emma never stopped being the most important person in his life. Believing them to be forever linked, he goes wherever she goes. Will doesn't have a home, a car, or a real job. He survives on his talent as a juggler and entertainer talents honed through years of showing off for Emma. When her father gets sick, Emma returns to their hometown, trying to leave behind her complicated love life and failing career as a TV actress. As its characters face love, death and their own preconceptions, Waiting for Forever questions the realities of life.
Now here's the trailer which comes through MTV Movies and The Hollywood Reporter:
