Now here's hoping. The trailer for About Ray doesn't make it look like anything to get excited about, artistically. But do consider that this is a film about a young trans boy, starring women in all three of its leading roles, written by two women and directed by one of them. So the trailer's hardly exciting, but here's hoping that the film is something to get excited about indeed. Some genuine excitement in that it could be an awards contender - The Weinstein Company is distributing the film both in the US and in writer-director Gaby Dellal's native UK; even if it proves to be more of a St. Vincent style autumn release for the studio, they made proper bank on that title and earned several awards nominations, including a SAG mention for About Ray lead Naomi Watts. Out in the US on the 11th of September.
