Here are some stills and a clip of Kirsten Dunst and Brian Geraghty from director Carlos Cuarón's short film The Second Bakery Attack. The film is based on a short story of the same name from acclaimed Japanese novelist Haruki Murakami.
With a running time of ten minutes the film tells the story of a newlywed couple experience post-marriage blues and stars Kirsten Dunst and Brian Geraghty. Most of you are likely familiar with Dunst, but Geraghty may not be a name you have heard a lot of. He starred in Bobby and had a break-out performance in The Hurt Locker, both performances I enjoyed.
When talking about the film, Cuarón had the following to say.
“It’s short, but there’s meticulous attention to detail just like a Murakami story! To me, Murakami’s works are universal, and at the same time very Japanese. This is what makes the project so intriguing for me—I did set the story in the United States but the tone of the conversations, the situation … somehow it’s very Tokyo.”
The Second Bakery Attack was shown at the Short Shorts Film Festival, where it was given the following logline:
Nat and Dan are recently married, but they just had their first fight. An overwhelming hunger keeps them both awake one night. What can they do to quell their hunger and save their marriage?
