First Trailer For Ensemble Dramedy ‘Person To Person’ | Film Trailer
Magnolia Pictures have released the trailer for their ensemble dramedy Person To Person, which examines the intersecting lives of a group of New Yorkers. The synopsis and trailer are below.
“During a single day in New York City, a variety of characters grapple with the mundane, the unexpected, and the larger questions permeating their lives. An investigative reporter struggles with her first day on the job, despite help from her misguided boss; a rebellious teen attempts to balance her feminist ideals with other desires; and a young man seeks to reconcile with his ex-girlfriend, even as her brother threatens revenge. Meanwhile, an avid music lover traverses the city in search of a rare record for his vinyl collection”.
If you watch the trailer above and get major Woody Allen vibes, you won’t be the only one. Though it’s easy to compare any New York-based comedy drama to Allen’s work, Person To Person looks to have a particular charm to it that captures what made Allen’s work so great in the 70s and 80s.
The film is directed by Dustin Guy Defa, whose sole feature length directorial credit prior to this is the very obscure but very good Bad Fever. If he can expand the intimacy and awkward heartache the permeated that film into a comfy balance between comedy and drama here, the film should turn out great.
Person To Person stars Michael Cera, Abbi Jacobson, Tavi Gevinson, Isiah Whitlock, Michaela Watkins and Philip Baker Hall, and hits both cinemas and various On Demand services Friday, July 28.
