James Franco, Mila Kunis, Jessica Chastain, Zach Braff, Henry Hopper, and Bruce Campbell in a film with 12 directors that was made around two years ago. The fact we haven’t heard much about this one can’t be good.
12 directors come together to bring this biopic of Pulitzer Prize-winning poet C.K. Williams to life. Terrence Malick’s influence is felt almost instantly, but it’s all looking a little too amateur to really have us excited. Still, we could be wrong.
After such a long delay in getting this movie distributed, The Color of Time will be available for digital download on December 2. A week later, December 9, will see the film hit On Demand and iTunes.
Official synopsis for The Color of Time:
James Franco, Mila Kunis, Jessica Chastain, and Zach Braff star in this dramatic and inventive look at the life and work of ionic Pulitzer Prize-winning poet C.K. Williams. Williams (Franco) has a beautiful, adoring wife (Kunis) and a young son. But as he prepares for a reading in New York City and struggles to create new work, he is haunted by memories of his past—from his first sexual encounter to a later tragic loss. An ensemble of 12 directors work with a star-studded cast to weave together this moving and unique story of a complex man and the relationships that defined him.
