First Powerful Trailer for Paul Dano In ‘For Ellen’

(Written for HeyUGuys)

Debuting at Sundance earlier this year, we have the first trailer for So Yong Kim‘s (Treeless Mountain) indie drama For Ellen.

Steming from Kim’s desire to understand her own father, For Ellen follows aspiring rock star Joby Taylor (Paul Dano) who, in the midst of a low period in his life, agrees to sign divorce papers with his estranged wife (Margarita Levieva). He soon realises, however, that signing the papers means he will forfeit all custody of his six-year-old daughter, Ellen (Shaylena Mandigo). With a good-natured lawyer (Jon Heder) unable to make headway in reversing the decision, Joby negotiates a visit with his daughter to explore whether he is able to walk away from his child, and whether it might be too late for reconciliation.

The new trailer looks very downbeat and slow but powerful nonetheless, and if nothing more it promises a deeply moving performance from Dano.

Also starring Jena Malone and Dakota Johnson, For Ellen is set to have a limited released in the US from 5th September ahead of its VOD release on 19th September.
