Review: (#1) A title that doesn’t make sense against an admitted beautiful, but ineffective backdrop don’t make for much of a sales tool, even with the critics plaudits on the front.

(#2) The images hidden within the red shirt are interesting, but difficult to see, which mutes their impact. (#3) Do you get the reference to San Francisco…the one not in the title? Hamfisted and obvious, neither of which is an inspiring descriptor.

Trailer Rating: B-

Review: There’s a metaphor going on with the title, but it’s not well conveyed with this trailer, which tells the audience that there’s emotional drama at the core, but never convinces them of it.

Oscar Prospects:

None.
