Alison Pill and Gael García Bernal star in Zoom, an interesting, trippy, upcoming dramedy that has its first trailer below.
The film tells of a comic book artist, a novelist, and a film director. Simple enough, but the twist is that each life authors a story about one of the others. Think Stranger Than Fiction, only with three authors. Or something like that. The synopsis beneath the trailer could help make it a bit clearer.
This could be a fun little film. It certainly looks creative and quirky, although it remains to be seen if there’s enough heart and drama to have us actually care about the oh-so meta shenanigans. We’ll see.
Zoom, also starring Mariana Ximenes, Tyler Labine, Don McKellar, Jennifer Irwin & Jason Priestley, will be hitting U.S. cinemas on September 2.
Synopsis for Zoom:
ZOOM is a fast-paced, pop-art inspired, multi-plot contemporary comedy. The film consists of three seemingly separate but ultimately interlinked storylines about a comic book artist, a novelist, and a film director. Each character lives in a separate world but authors a story about the life of another.
The comic book artist, Emma, works by day at an artificial love doll factory, and is hoping to undergo a secret cosmetic procedure. Emma’s comic tells the story of Edward, a cocky film director with a debilitating secret about his anatomy. The director, Edward, creates a film that features Michelle, an aspiring novelist who escapes to Brazil and abandons her former life as a model. Michelle, pens a novel that tells the tale of Emma, who works at an artificial love doll factory… And so it goes…
