Boy I haven’t done a poster post in ages, nor have I paid Impawards site a visit recently. But a couple nights ago I came across this gorgeous poster of Ben Foster’s upcoming romance drama HERE. I first saw the trailer over at Castor’s post last week and the story appeals to me. It’s rare to see a full-on romance that isn’t a rom-com or something dark and depressing these days.
I love the unconventional layout of this poster, and the shot and colors have that dreamy, melancholic feel. It seems to suggest that the movie will be well-photographed of Armenia as it was shot on location.
Here’s the premise:
Cartographer Will Shepard hits the road for his latest job: to create a new, more accurate satellite survey of Armenia. During his assignment, he forms a bond with an Armenian expatriate and art photographer.
I quite like Ben Foster, I think he’s one of today’s brightest young actors. I first saw him in a small role in X-Men 3 and then in 3:30 to Yuma, both of which showed what he’s capable of. I haven’t seen him in a drama so I’m looking forward to seeing what he’d do with that. He kinds of reminds me of Ryan Gosling when he was doing The Notebook, but I kind of like Foster more as he’s still somewhat obscure (for now anyway).
This is also Braden King’s feature film debut and it’s been previewed in 2011 Sundance and Berlin Film Festival. One of the Sundance reviews praised the film, “Visually sumptuous and with areal literary beauty in both its narrative structure and dialogue…” Sounds like one of those films where the location is almost a character in itself.
Will this be a journey worth taking? I’d be willing to give it a try if it ever comes to my neck of the woods.
What do you think folks? Does this movie appeal to you?
