Cherry trailer doesn't favour Franco, Graham, Patel
Cherry carries an interesting cast with Lili Taylor, Heather Graham, Dev Patel and James Franco as supporting characters with the lead of Ashley Hinshaw looking as though she's performing well alongside these actors.
However the trailer really doesn't sell the film or tell us what it has to say about the story. Although we know we'll be seeing a girl who looks like she's on the verge of entering the adult film industry, it doesn't tell us which way it's going to go and what it is going to say about her life.
The trailer for Cherry seems a little haphazard and could have told us more rather than feeling as though it's been pulled together from various scenes to show, well, I'm not sure what. At least it does get to show us the key cast members and that's important.
Here's the blurb for the film to tell us a little more:
Cherry is about Angelina (Ashley Hinshaw), an 18-year-old girl on the verge of finishing high school. Angelina's family life is difficult. Her mother (Lili Taylor) is an alcoholic and her step-father is violent and unpredictable. One morning her boyfriend (Jonny Weston) suggests she take naked pictures for money. She balks at first but then does the photo shoot, using the money to run-off with her best friend (Dev Patel) to San Francisco. In San Francisco, while cocktailing in a strip club, Angelina meets Frances (James Franco) a well-off lawyer who offers to introduce her to a different kind of world, a place full of expensive dresses and fancy parties. But that world is not as perfect as it first appears and Frances has problems of his own. At the same time Angelina, using the moniker Cherry, has begun exploring the San Francisco porn industry under the direction of Margaret (Heather Graham) a former performer turned adult film director.
Now here's the trailer for Cherry which TrailerAddict has:
The trailer could be better but the cast looks good doesn't it? Here's an interesting piece of information, the film is co-written by Lorelei Lee who is a real adult film star having appeared in a ton of more fetish related films, I wonder if her own story has inspired this film?
