The trailer for director Guillaume Canet‘s film Little White Lies starts off with some rock ‘n’ roll and a party atmosphere. A boat cuts through beautiful waves, a group of friends yells with delight while celebrating each other on the beach, and then a motorcycle is demolished by a speeding service truck.
That terrible accident acts as the catalyst for a host of secret feelings and emotional outbursts that emerge to threaten friendships. However, it sounds more like dramedy than all out melodrama. Starring Oscar winners Marion Cotillard and Jean Dujardin alongside the impeccable talents of Francois Cluzet, Benoit Magimel, Gilles Lellouche and others, the movie from the man behind Tell No One looks like a stunner of an ensemble achievement.
At the very least, it looks like it will be at home during awards season.
Check out the trailer for yourself:
Little White Lies is in theaters August 24th.
It’s been out in various countries since 2010 and is no doubt getting a release following the popularity of both Cotillard and Dujardin as well as the increased interest in Canet’s work after Tell No One.
