traceyfragments04.jpg15-year old Tracey Berkowitz is naked under a tattered shower curtain at the back of a bus, looking for her little brother Sonny, who thinks he’s a dog.

Before the production of Juno, which chronicled the term of a 16-year old pregnant girl, now Oscar nominated actress Ellen Page was working on a project called The Tracey Fragments with Canadian indie director Bruce McDonald. And as you can see from the small synopsis below, it is quite an unusual film. Tracey’s journey to find her brother leads her to the underbelly of the city and ultimately into the arms of Billy Zero – her boyfriend and rock ‘n’ roll saviour.

The Tracey Fragments is billed as a stirring tragic comedy and a 21st century ‘Catcher in the Rye’, told in dazzling pop-art fashion. Think Factory Girl meets Hard Candy meets well, ‘Catcher in the Rye’. It appears to be a very unique and bold production, displaying the raw talent that is Ellen Page much like the aforementioned David Slade pic Hard Candy — except without all the castration.

The Tracey Fragments makes its American theatrical debut on May 9th in New York. It will then receive a platform release in the US by THINKFilm. You will find both the trailer and some awesome promotional stills below (Just click to enlarge).
