Trailerama: Some Days Are Better Than Others

Riot grrl vets will be intrigued by the dramatic debut of Sleater-Kinney’s Carrie Brownstein. Anybody blown away by Kelly Reichardt’s films will be intrigued at the prospect of the debut from her contemporary Matt McCormick, who writes and directs. The SXSW Film Festival description is a little cagey about this ensemble drama. It’s described as exploring “ideas of abundance, emptiness, human connection and abandonment while observing an interweaving web of awkward characters that maintain hope by inventing their own forms of communication and self-fulfillment.” Got that? Let’s hope the movie itself is a little pithier. The good news is the visuals revel in that uniquely Northwest combination of human driftwood set against an inscrutable Mother Nature.
