With the most romantic holiday nearly upon us (Flag Day and Arbor Day can't even come close), Magnolia has gotten a little kinky and has teased the upcoming release of Lars von Trier's 'Nymphomaniac' with a brand new trailer. And this one doesn't feature hardcore sex!
Having already played some festivals (including Sundance), von Trier's film is what we expect of the master artist and prankster, as it deals in sexuality in way that American cinema has been uncomfortable with for decades. The film stars a number of famous faces, including Shia LaBeouf (who recently stormed out of the film's press conference), Stellan Skasgard of 'Thor' fame, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Jamie Bell, Uma Thurman, Stacy Martin, Connie Nielsen, Christian Slater, and more
Here's the film's synopsis:
NYMPHOMANIAC: VOLUME I is the story of Joe (Charlotte Gainsbourg), a self-diagnosed nymphomaniac who is discovered badly beaten in an alley by an older bachelor, Seligman (Stellan Skarsgård), who takes her into his home. As he tends to her wounds, she recounts the erotic story of her adolescence and young-adulthood (portrayed in flashback by newcomer Stacy Martin)
