Person to Person — Trailer


added: Thu, Jun 22nd '17

Michael Cera and Broad City's Abbi Jacobson are a couple of New York newspaper reporters snooping for a big story in the trailer for "Person to Person," a slice-of-life deadpan comedy that seems to harken back to the guerrilla-style ensemble slacker films of the 1970s, '80s and early '90s.

Written and directed by indie filmmaker Dustin Guy Defa (Bad Fever), and based on one of his short films, "Person to Person" follows the lives of several New Yorkers during the course of one, long, innocuous day.

Besides Cera and Jacobson's characters, the film features a cast of eccentric personalities that include the likes of a veteran timepiece repairman (Philip Baker Hall), a passionate Jazz music enthusiast (Bene Coopersmith), a mortified computer illiterate (George Sample III), an emotionally detached widow (Michaela Watkins), and a misanthropic teen girl (Tavi Gevinson).

Shot in grainy 16mm, "Person to Person" will be released in select theaters and on iTunes, Amazon Video, and VOD on July 28th.

During a single day in New York City, a variety of characters grapple with the mundane, the unexpected, and the larger questions permeating their lives. An investigative reporter struggles with her first day on the job, despite help from her misguided boss; a rebellious teen attempts to balance her feminist ideals with other desires; and a young man seeks to reconcile with his ex-girlfriend, even as her brother threatens revenge. Meanwhile, an avid music lover traverses the city in search of a rare record for his vinyl collection.
