DAYDREAM NATION could be one of the movie you may want to check out if your heading to next month’s Toronto film festival where it’ll make its premiere. The movie is written & directed by Michael Goldblach starring Kat Dennings, Josh Lucas, Reece Thompson, Andie MacDowell and Natasha Calis.
The movie is about a teenage girl (Dennings) moves to a rural town (currently been plagued by a serial killer) where she has an affair with a teacher (Lucas).I dont if the killer is just a spin off/ background story or the affair will get entangled into the killers path who knows interesting twist. Apart from the movie going to be at TIFF 2010 there is no word yet as and when this flick will be released apart from it been 2011. I wonder if this will be one of those flicks that does the rounds of the festival, you then completely forget about and bang it appears a year or two later, mm? enjoy the trailer.
In this darkly comedic coming-of-age story, a teenage girl moves from the city to a small town, only to find she has absolutely nothing in common with the stoner-hicks who populate her high school. So Caroline Wexler begins an affair with the one person she connects with: her handsome young teacher. But with a serial killer on the loose and townsfolk disappearing around them, their relationship takes a turn for the worse—and when Caroline breaks it off in favor of a boy her age, the rejection makes her teacher crazy, driving the film towards its surreal, heartbreaking, wildly romantic conclusion.
