trailer break: ‘Cheri’

Take a break from work: watch a trailer…


Hooray! It’s an older woman-younger man romance. Or sex romp, at least. It’s based on the naughty novels by turn-of-the-20th-century French author Colette, so perhaps it will be free of the bizarre hangups we seem to have developed about sex in our pop culture in the last quarter of the 20th century and into today. Such as that women over 30 — like Michelle Pfeiffer — can’t be sexy, or that they are never interested in pretty young boys, like Rupert Friend.

Oh, and it’s from Stephen Frears, so I do expect this will be very good.

Cheri is now playing in the U.K.; it opens in the U.S. on June 26.

    I hope she doesn’t break a hip.

  • That face-lift is really distracting.

    Colette + Stephen Frears = win.

    I believe the previous two comments are exactly what MAJ means when she talks about “the bizarre hangups we seem to have developed about sex.” This film looks very interesting and I applaud any one involved for bringing it to the silver screen here in the states.

    nyjm: Although one can argue which hangup is more bizarre: That a face looks better after a face lift or that a face looks distracting after a face lift.

    On the other hand, I guess both are hangups we have developed in the last quarter of the 20th century.

    Yeah, exactly. She doesn’t look pretty or sexual at all, she looks horrifyingly, distractingly plastic.
