Amazing to think its nearly three years since Boyhood. The follow-up film Everybody Wants Some!! was a moderate success. Last Flag Flying was a blink you miss release, now Richard Linklater returning next year with Where’d You Go, Bernadette.
Today Entertainment UK One has released the UK Trailer, an adaptation of Maria Semple‘s International Bestseller. Cate Blanchett stars as the titular character Bernadette Fox, opinionated architect whose also an agoraphobic. On the eve of a family holiday, she disappears.
The film looking like another fascinating character study from Linklater. A woman trying to find herself in the world whilst her loved ones try to understand her at the same time. Some people are a little cautious but also looking forward to seeing this. Personally, if you’re a Linklater fan this looks trademark stuff from the director.
Based on the international bestselling novel by Maria Semple, and directed by Richard Linklater, Where’d You Go, Bernadette stars Cate Blanchett as the title character, the notoriously idiosyncratic Bernadette Fox. An agoraphobic architect, Bernadette is fearlessly opinionated and revolutionary. To her 15-year-old daughter Bee, she is a best friend and, simply, mum. When Bernadette disappears prior to a trip to Antarctica, the family are forced to re-evaluate their priorities in order to bring them close again. A compulsively watchable and touching film about misplaced genius and a mother and daughter’s role in an absurd world.
The film also stars Kristen Wiig, Billy Crudup, Laurence Fishburne, Judy Greer and Emma Nelson.
Where’d You Go, Bernadette, will arrive in UK and Irish Cinemas in Spring 2019.
