The review quote missing from the Dear Lemon Lima trailer is Rob Hunter saying, “What an oddly beautiful and bittersweet little film this is…” In his review, he describes exactly why he fell in love with the movie, but since a picture is worth a thousand words, here’s 2,208,000 words (at 24 frames per second) on why you should love it.
The movie tells the story of a young girl whose boyfriend calls it quits, and she decides that winning the Snowstorm Survivor Competition is the way back into his arms and affections.
The sweet and sour and funny and strange are all there. Just like growing up.
Check out the trailer for yourself:
This trailer hooks from the beginning. While the Juno and Napoleon Dynamite comparisons might be spot-on, the trailer doesn’t make the movie seem nearly as annoying as either of those movies.
Plus, the heart-pooping cartoon rabbit seals the deal.
Dear Lemon Lima, directed and written by Suzi Yoonessi is getting a limited theatrical release on March 4, 2011. It stars Savanah Wiltfong, Beth Grant and Melissa Leo.
