‘And While We Were Here’ Poster Premiere: Misty, Water-Colored Memories With Kate Bosworth


Smack in the middle of a fizzy-skewing resume that includes titles like L!fe Happens and A Case of You, writer and director Kat Coiro‘s And While We Were Here has long occupied a space of drama and romance that doesn’t seem to come with the kind of belly laughs the filmmaker’s other fare spawns.

Based on a set of audio tapes that Coiro made in conversation with her own grandmother, the film follows American writer Jane (Kate Bosworth) as she embarks on what should be a dreamy trip to Italy with her husband (Iddo Goldberg), one that soon becomes mired in her own attempts to adapt tapes of her grandmother’s WWII-set life story for a memoir. Oh, and then there’s that affair with a younger man (Jamie Blackley). It sounds like one heck of a trip, and the film’s newest poster, exclusively debuting here, conveys the wistfulness and dreaminess of a journey worth taking.

And While We Were Here will hit VOD on August 13th and theaters on September 13th.
