FESTIVAL DE CANNES – TRAILER OF THE DAY: Restless

Restless is another film all about love, but nothing like those fluffy chick flicks infected with pristine model like actors, like Ashton Kutcher. The story centers on the friendship and love built up between Annabel Cotton played by Alice in Wonderland’s Mia Wasikowska (The Gwyneth Paltrow look-alike) and Enoch Brae (Henry Hooper). The two misfits in their own right find a special bond through their unique experience of the world around them. The premise of the film is much like A Walk to Remember featuring Mandy Moore, minus the trophy boy and high school melodrama,  but in that she is diagnosed with a terminal illness that she and everyone around her has to come to terms with. Enoch on the other hand can not blame his differences on a terminal illness. He meets Annabel at one of the funerals he has crashed and has an best friend named Hiroshi, who is a ghost. Ok…

The trailer kind of gives away the whole story, but I am hoping the portrayal of the characters will enable Restless to be a high flyer. Restless has been selected for the the Un Certain Regard catergory, which celebrates the younger generation of film-makers.
