THE MERRY GENTLEMAN Trailer
Check out the trailer for THE MERRY GENTLEMAN starring Michael Keaton, Kelly Macdonald, Tom Bastounes, Bobby Canavale, and directed by Michael Keaton.
Cinematical got an exclusive first look and I gotta say what a nice trailer. It looks like the kind of simple story that stays with you for a while. Or at the very least it’ll make you feel better. And of course Kelly Macdonald is always brilliant, and Michael Keaton looks really great as well, plus he is also the director and I’m curious to find out how it comes out.
The Merry Gentleman will be released to theaters on May 1, 2009. Watch the trailer below.
The Merry Gentleman Synopsis: Running away from a troubled marriage, Kate Frazier hopes to find anonymity with a new home and a new job in Chicago. Despite friendly flirtation from co-workers and others, the shy and reserved Kate keeps her distance, avoiding questions about her sudden arrival and her recent past.
When Kate meets Frank Logan, the two discover unexpected satisfaction in their mutual, shared silence. Haunted by the troubling choices he has made, Frank finds a kindred spirit in the younger Kate, and for a moment the two seem destined to redeem and remake each other. As the holidays and New Year pass against an urban landscape that seems both breathtakingly beautiful and starkly quiet, Kate and Frank’s friendship becomes one of necessity and survival for these two lost spirits. But neither lonely soul can escape the lives they have left behind. As events unfold and the painful truth slowly emerges, Frank is forced to face the man he really is, while Kate struggles to be the stronger woman she needs to be.
A truly original Christmas story, The Merry Gentleman is a heady mix of suspense, gentle romance and quiet humor — a riveting, uniquely entertaining tale of forgiveness and redemption that blends a hopeful spirit with a surprisingly dark heart.
