Trailer For Norah Jones’ Mumblecore Movie, Wah Do Dem

Posted by August 9, 2010 Comment

Yep – this is the kind of film in which 1) Norah Jones acts, 2) as a character called Willow. A mini-checklist of twee. It’s even being actively marketed as a sample of Mumblecore.

An acquired taste, maybe, but the Jamaican setting and soundtrack both appeal. Santigold, Yeasayer, MGMT, Suckers, The Congos, and Bones have all contributed music and members of Yeasayer and MGMT also appear in the film.

As the film gears up for a UK cinema release, Network have distributed the trailer. I’m intrigued.

Wah Do Dem, if you don’t understand Jamaican patois, would translate to What They Do.
