Review: (#1) The film’s about this woman, but not having something beyond this to sell the film is a disservice to it. (#2) The white space is excessive, but the core design is compelling without being exciting.
Trailer Rating: C

Review: If notices from critics get you excited, then this trailer’s for you. However, if you don’t care what the critics have to say and want to be enthralled by a film, the trailer does very little to get you there. There are some interesting ideas at play, but the trailer doesn’t sell them well.
It was a hit on the festival circuit, but can the film’s year-later release and March drop hurt its chances? That’s a distinct possibility.
