Three new movie trailers for three more films which are set to premiere at this year’s South By Southwest Film Festival have hit the interwebs: My Effortless Brilliance, a low-budget mumblecore Duplass Brothers-esque drama about two friends, One Minute to Nine, a haunting documentary about one family’s history of domestic abuse, and Up With Me, a story about a teenager from Harlem who is admitted to an upstate boarding school. Check them out below.
I’m not too impressed with this batch, but I’m positive this is not an indicative of what the rest of the festival will offer. You can also check out the last batch of SXSW trailers (Reformat the Planet, Second Skin and New Orleans Mon Amour) at this link.
