The Cannes Film Festival is revving up, and promotion has begun on Wong Kar Wai’s debut English language film, My Blueberry Nights. Yesterday we posted a new set of production photos. Today we have the theatrical teaser trailer. Alas, no Natalie Portman or Rachel Weisz footage to be found. But it’s worth the peep none the less. There is a lot of buzz around this film at the festival leading up to it’s premiere.
Official Plot Synopsis:
After a rough break-up, Elizabeth (played by songstress Norah Jones in her screen debut) sets out on a journey across America, leaving behind a life of memories, a dream and a soulful new friend – a cafÃ© owner (Jude Law) – all while in search of something to mend her broken heart. Waitressing her way through the country, Elizabeth befriends others whose yearnings are greater than hers, including a troubled cop (David Strathairn) and his estranged wife (Rachel Weisz) and a down-on-her luck gambler (Natalie Portman) with a score to settle.
Through these individuals, Elizabeth witnesses the true depths of loneliness and emptiness, and begins to understand that her own journey is part of a greater exploration within herself.
