James White, which stunned audiences at the Sundance Film Festival when it made its debut in January, has just received its first trailer, following the release of the film’s official poster a little over a week ago. Check it out down below after the plot synopsis…
Both Christopher Abbott (Girls), who stars as the titular character, and Cynthia Nixon (Sex and the City), who plays his mom, have garnered a large amount of praise for their performances in the indie drama. On top of that, the film took home the Best of Next Audience Award at Sundance.
James White (Christopher Abbott) is a troubled twenty-something trying to stay afloat in a frenzied New York City. He retreats further into a self-destructive, hedonistic lifestyle, but as his mother (Cynthia Nixon) battles a serious illness James is forced to take control of his life. As the pressure on him mounts, James must find new reserves of strength or risk imploding completely.
Josh Mond (Martha Marcy May Marlene) makes his directorial debut with the film, which features a cast that also includes Scott Mescudi (Comedy Bang Bang), Ron Livingston (The Conjuring), Makenzie Leigh (Gotham), David Call (Tiny Furniture) and David Cale (True Story). Expect to see it in US theaters on November 13, 2015.
