A movie trailer for the new Michael Keaton movie,The Merry Gentleman, is now online, and it looks… meh. It’s good to see Keaton back at it, but the trailer reveals little as to what kind of movie this is going to be. A hit man film? I doubt it. A drama? Maybe, but not a very dramatic one. A comedy? I didn’t laugh.
See for yourself:
The Merry Gentleman tells the story of Kate Frazier, a young woman running away from a troubled marriage in the hopes to find anonymity with a new home and a new job in Chicago. When Kate meets Frank Logan, the two discover unexpected satisfaction in their mutual shared silence. Â Haunted by the troubling choices he has made, Frank finds a kindred spirit in the younger Kate, and, for a moment, the two seem destined to redeem and remake each other. Â As the holidays and New Year pass against an urban landscape that seems both breathtakingly beautiful and starkly quiet, Kate and Frankâ€™s friendship becomes one of necessity and survival. But, neither lonely soul can escape the lives they have left behind. As events unfold and the painful truth slowly emerges, Frank is forced to face the man he truly is, while Kate struggles to become the woman she needs to be.
