ETIENNE! Movie Trailer & Pictures
Check out the trailer and some pictures for ETIENNE! starring Richard Vallejos, Megan Harvey, Caveh Zahedi, and directed by Jeff Mizushima.
Etienne! is a movie that has been doing the Festival rounds lately and even won the Special Jury Award at the CineVegas Film Festival. It follows the story of Richard, whose best and only friend, Etienne, a dwarf hamster, is diagnosed with terminal cancer. Richard decides to take him on a bicycle road trip up the California coast to show him the world before he must put him to sleep.
For full disclosure I have to let you know that the producer is a friend of mine. And while that is why I am aware of the film, it’s not why I decided to write about it (and in case you’re wondering, he didn’t reach out to me to write anything about the movie, I actually reached out to him). I wanted to share information about Etienne! because I actually think it’s a pretty original concept and thought that some of you might enjoy discovering new things. Plus how can you say no to this face:
I have yet to see Etienne! so I can’t comment on how good it actually is, but I am familiar with my friend’s previous work, and I know he wouldn’t put his name on something that he didn’t work really hard on and believe in.
Watch the trailer and check out more pictures below.
You can also check out the official website, which is really well done. The funniest thing is that you can actually play a little bit with the hamster on the lower right. You can do things like feed him, play with him, and more… I have way too much time on my hands, don’t I?!
