We are winding down on the summer movie season which will eventually lead us to into the awards season. It is probably my favorite time for movies cause it usually leads to where the best movies will most likely be showcased. This year at my most anticipated festival, TIFF there is a bunch of films that should have audiences reason to be excited. To my surprise, Matt Damon has two high-profile films Suburbicon and Downsizing being shown at the festival.
Today Paramount Pictures has released the trailer for Suburbicon. Directed by George Clooney and written by Joel and Ethan Cohen. The film takes place in the 1950’s in a small town that seems to embody the perfect American neighborhood. You go on a journey as Matt Damon’s wife has passed away. As he begins to unravel what really happened to his wife he uncovers what is really going in this seemingly perfect neighborhood.
From the trailer, it seems this really gives off the perfect blend of what a Cohen brothers film should be. The vibes that the film gives off it this unique Cohen brothers comedy that only their writing styles could give off. Cooney’s hyper sensitive bloody romp of a time. Cooney seems to give off that stylized vibe which separates him from how the Cohen Brothers would have directed the movie. He seems to let the comedic moments breath and let the audience take in the joke. This film is due to appear at both Venice and TIFF so we will see how audiences and critics react to it. Will it be one of the first comedy based films that get widespread awards season buzz?
Suburbicon opens up October 27th, the film also stars Juliane Moore, Noah Jupe, and Oscar Isaac.
