My lord, this looks fantastic. Fresh, energetic and rich in character and drama, Michel Gondry‘s new feature film The We and the I has just received its first trailer, ahead of the film’s premiere in Cannes.
Straight to the top of my most anticipated films of the year. I loved more or less every second of that.
If you don’t know any of the background on the film, here’s how I put it earlier:
It’s hard to guess where Michel Gondry’s upcoming movie The We & The I is going to take us for several reasons. Firstly, he’s never been one to stick to dogma. Secondly, it’s a very low budget picture and free of budget-driven pressures. And thirdly, it actually appears to be evolving dramatically as they make it.
The Playlist have revealed that the film is shooting now. They tell us:
the film centers on a group of school kids who travel into the future by mistake and discover a machine that keeps people younger.
The odd bit is their addendum: apparently this premise is accurate “for now.” It’s certainly very different to the previously published, social-realist set up.
Seems like the time travel component got kicked off the bus. I don’t know that we’ll miss it.
