A Nebraska teen gets much more than she bargained for when she sets out for the bright lights of the big city in Hick and Phase 4 Films has released both the red band and green band trailers for the upcoming limited and video on demand release starring Blake Lively, Chloe Moretz, Alec Baldwin, Juliette Lewis, Eddie Redmayne and Rory Culkin.
Based on the novel by Andrea Portes and directed by Derek Martini, the film centers on Luli (Moretz), a small town teenager who runs away from her abusive parents to Las Vegas armed with a pistol and some pocket money. On her way west she crosses paths with Eddie (Redmayne), an unstable rebel with questionable motives and Glenda (Lively), a cocaine-snorting drifter on the run.
The film hits limited theaters on May 11 and will be On Demand at the same time. I’ve included both the red band and green band trailers directly below. Take you pick and let me know what you think. Personally, just using the words emotional, uncomfortable, absurd, chaotic and controversial give off that sense of trying too hard because the trailer doesn’t seem anywhere near as radical as that combination of adjectives implies.
