Review: A lacking design with few distinctive colors, which wash out the dully-clothed central figure. The letter at the top sufficiently explains one element of the narrative while ultimately leaving the whole rather confused.
Trailer Rating: B+

Review: A surprisingly evocative trailer that will speak to all the “loners” out there and give them hope that their struggles may be recognized with this film.
This could be an underdog story as it was when it ran on Broadway. A lot will depend on if it can hold out from September into December since September is not a great month for Oscar contenders to debut.
