‘Jack and Diane’ Trailer: Coming of Age is Scary
Girl meets girl. Girl falls in love with girl. Girl becomes werewolf? At least that’s what the trailer for the new film ‘Jack and Diane,’ starring Juno Temple and Riley Keough would lead us to believe. A coming of age story about werewolf lesbians? Sure!
Juno Temple may not be a name you’re that well acquainted with, but the young actress has an impressive resume, ranging from parts in ‘Atonement’ and last year’s festival indie ‘Cracks,’ to this year’s ‘The Dark Knight Rises‘ and a breakout performance in William Friedkin’s ‘Killer Joe.’ Temple can be seen next in the upcoming lesbian coming of age drama ‘Jack and Diane’ alongside Riley Keough and Kylie Minogue.
The new trailer for ‘Jack and Diane’ hardly alludes to the werewolf element — a relief, considering werewolf films in recent years have been rather underwhelming. Instead, the trailer focuses on the blossoming romance between Jack (Keough) and Diane (Temple), two teens who meet and fall in love in New York City. Everything is going well until Diane’s mother announces plans to send her away to school in France, causing Jack to react rather coldly, which in turn inspires new, violent and confusing changes in Diane.
‘Jack and Diane’ is directed by Bradley Rust Gray and features — from what we can tell from the trailer below — some rather fascinating animated sequences courtesy of the Quay Brothers. The soundtrack features new music from Mum with Kylie Minogue, the latter of which looks kind of rough and ragged in this trailer, and we’re digging it.
The film hits theaters November 2, courtesy of Magnolia Pictures.
