Poster Rating: C / C-

Review: (#1 & #2) Neither poster depicts an actual sunset. While that’s not a prerequisite for creative design, the two posters aren’t particularly compelling otherwise, which makes the overall absence of reference more noticeable. The first design succeeds over the first design in its framing and general color scheme even if both betray an unnecessary use of Photoshop.

Trailer Rating: B-

SEE ALL TRAILERS BELOW
Review: Conventional storytelling doesn’t give the audience nearly as much appreciation for the subject matter as it should. That leaves the trailer to do the heavy lifting and while there are some interesting elements from the film on display, it all comes across as a touch generic.

Oscar Prospects:

None.
