Riveting ‘Reader’ trailer

Posted by · 7:37 pm · October 31st, 2008

Is it just me or is this trailer for Stephen Daldry’s “The Reader” firing on all cylinders.  I was glued to it.  I never read Bernhard Schlink’s novel, but I wish I had picked it up somewhere along the line.  Click the image below for a peek at the film:

    Holy crap. Ever since I was utterly floored by “Billy Elliot” and “The Hours” I know Stephen Daldry was a dude to look out for. He’s quickly become one of the most consistent and wonderfully satisfying modern directors in my eyes, and I cannot wait for this!!! Double Kate Winslet noms!

    Julien, I believe that’s Lena Olin… know for her role in “ALIAS”.

    The trailer does look riveting…. I have high hopes! And this looks to be Winslet’s year.

    Wow, looks great. I forgot so many of the book but it all came back with this trailer. I wasn’t expecting this, I also wasn’t expecting to see Bruno Ganz there too. Looks like a winner again.

    Oh my god. This looks like Best Picture material. I’m officially a fan of Daldry! Kate Winslet looks more and more certain of Oscar success.

    Holly SMOKES! That was fantastic. And I’m sold. I’ve love Winslet since forever and can’t wait for me oscar nods her two films will surely bring her! Excited…

    It looks terrific — but I’m having a hard time swallowing Winslet’s “supporting” classification from the trailer (and my memory of the book). Oh well, whatever works for them.

    I’m wondering, wouldn’t this be a nice moment to nominate Bruno Ganz just for the heck of it?

    I’ll say this about Kate Winslet: she’s not afraid to take risks.
