trailer break: ‘Coco Before Chanel’

Take a break from work: watch a trailer…

This must be the international trailer: even trailers for arthouse releases that will get limited play in the U.S. and Canada never get subtitles — they get cleverly edited to eliminate any dialogue that will suggest that the film is not in English.

And I’m glad I saw this trailer, because I’m now eager to see the film. Not only is it written and directed by a woman — Anne Fontaine, whose The Girl from Monaco is at a few U.S. arthouses now — but it’s about a woman doing interesting things, like reinventing fashion. Hoorah!

I love how old-fashioned this trailer is, too, with the “She DEFIED CONVENTION” and “DEFINED the MODERN WOMAN” splashed across it.

Audrey Tautou and Alessandro Nivola? *swoon* to both…

“She likes to dress with no corsets”! You go, girl.

Coco Before Chanel is now playing in the U.K.; it opens in the U.S. on September 25.
