The Perfect Trailer
Having recently posted on the art of the trailer, I now have a perfect example in the just released trailer for Todd Field's upcoming Little Children. No flash at all, just very simple...no music, minimal dialogue and only a suggestion of a plot surrounding marital infidelity. The standout here is the use of sound, which is incredible. You'll see what I mean. Amazing how such a simple trailer can pack such an emotional punch. The film hasn't really been on my radar for this fall's releases but I am now paying attention. Todd Field also directed the highly-lauded In The Bedroom and the tone of Little Children appears to be in the same vein as that surprisingly affecting domestic drama.
