Intriguing First Trailer For THE VANISHING OF SIDNEY HALL with Kyle Chandler, Logan Lerman, and Elle Fanning
If you like a good mystery, I've got an intriguing trailer here for you to watch for the film The Vanishing of Sidney Hall. The film premiered at Sundance last year and I heard good things. After watching this trailer, I think it looks like a movie worth checking out.
The movie tells the story of a character named Sidney Hall, played by Logan Lerman, who found success as a writer with a popular novel that he wrote at an early age. He then ends up disappearing without a trace, so his friends and family start searching for him to see what happened. It's going to be interesting to see how this mystery unfolds.
I like the tone and the vibe of what I'm seeing and it has a super great cast that includes Logan Lerman, Kyle Chandler, Elle Fanning, Michelle Monaghan, Nathan Lane, and Margaret Qualley. Here's the synopsis:
Sidney Hall harbors a precocious talent for writing. His classroom essays exhibit a danger that some find off-putting, though one teacher recognizes his talent and urges Sidney to pursue a writing career. Early success with his first novel makes Sidney a celebrity, though his dystopian observations about suburbia provoke tragic outcomes among some young readers, cloaking his name in scandal. Heightened scrutiny and expectations haunt him, as do dark secrets from his past that complicate his creativity, and interfere with his chances of finding love with a childhood sweetheart. When the disillusioned writer has all but disappeared from public life, a mysterious detective seeks the answer to his mystery.
The movie was directed by Shawn Christensen and it will be released exclusively on DIRECTV on January 25th and will be in theaters on March 2nd from A24.
