Trailer: 'August'

by Billy Fisher

I know that a lot of people aren't really into independant movies.  Either they're too hard to find or we don't know about them until they're out on Dvd.  But I found a trailer for one that might be worth the effort to try to find.  It is called, "August", and it stars Josh Hartnett.

Here's the synopsis from

AUGUST follows Tom Sterling (Josh Hartnett) as an aggressive, young dot-com entrepreneur who fights to keep his start-up company afloat. Tom finds himself on a personal and professional downward spiral as he struggles to reunite with girlfriend, Sarrah (Naomie Harris), regain control of his company from his apathetic investor Ogilvie (David Bowie), and deal with age-old family wounds with his father, David (Rip Torn) and his brother Joshua (Adam Scott). The film also stars Emmanuelle Chriqui as Morela and Andre Royo as Dylan.

What they don't really say in the trailer is that this is August 2001, one month before 9-11. I don't know what factor this will play in the story, but it takes place in New York, so I have a feeling it will be the looming character throughout the movie.

Josh Hartnett is not a big draw for me; he did do well in, "Wicker Park", but the draw for me are the co-stars such as Adam Scott, and David Bowie.  To me, these are two of the most underrated actors in Hollywood, and I feel the movie scene that we know would benefit if these two actors were in more movies. 

I don't know much more about this movie, but I do know it will be released sometime this year, and I am looking forward to what kind of story this has to tell.  If you want to watch the trailer, the link is:
