quietearth [Celluloid 10.01.09] movie trailer news drama



While I've been clocking this beauty for quite some time, we've been unable to get a review of it even with all the festival coverage we do, and now, IFC has released it on IFC Festival Direct so we can all see it. They've also provided us an exclusive clip (we asked for something aberrant and/or violent) which we have embedded after the break along with the trailer, and I have to say, I'm excited to watch this one. It seems like a dark look into the world of teenagers and what they have access to today.

Afterschool is also playing exclusively at Cinema Village in Manhattan if you want to see it on the big screen. It's short run starts tomorrow, Friday, October 2nd.

Robert (Ezra Miller) is a sensitive young kid finding it difficult to fit in at the elite East Coast preparatory school he attends. He attends sessions with the school counselor, takes his medication and spends a lot of his spare time in front of a computer screen, glued to the images of sex and violence he can access. Robert's roommate Trevor (Emory Cohen) is dealing drugs, yet is the closest thing to a friend he has, at least until he plucks up the nerve to get closer to open, attractive Amy (Addison Timlin). Paired to make a video project together, Robert and Amy traipse the school corridors gathering footage, until a tragedy occurs that affects the whole of the school, and has consequences for Robert in particular.

Clip and trailer after the break.
