Have you ever walked into a room full of people and had to try your hardest to find your place in a conversation going on only to be left nodding as if you have a clue? Well that’s how I felt after watching this trailer for YOUNG ONES. It looks full of great performances and visual delights, but I can’t figure out how I feel about the rest or if I should care at all. Our own Chris Bumbray said "It’s wild, it’s sprawling, and it’s uneven, but it’s also very entertaining” in his Sundance review, which I’m positive is a very accurate description.

Check out the official synopsis:

YOUNG ONES is set in a near future when water has become the most precious and dwindling resource on the planet, one that dictates everything from the macro of political policy to the detailed micro of interpersonal family and romantic relationships. The land has withered into something wretched. The dust has settled on a lonely, barren planet. The hardened survivors of the loss of Earth’s precious resources scrape and struggle. Ernest Holm (Michael Shannon) lives on this harsh frontier with his children, Jerome (Kodi Smit McPhee)and Mary (Elle Fanning). He defends his farm from bandits, works the supply routes, and hopes to rejuvenate the soil. But Mary’s boyfriend, Flem Lever (Nicholas Hoult), has grander designs. He wants Ernest’s land for himself, and will go to any length to get it.

I will watch anything starring Michael Shannon, which sometimes means I will end up checking this one out. If anything it looks like an ambitious take on the post-apocalyptic wasteland genre. The movie also stars Nicholas Hoult, Elle Fanning, and Kodi Smit-McPhee.

YOUNG ONES opens October 17th 2014. What do you think?

Looks interesting and intricate and not at all far fetched given how things are progressing. Plus Michael Shannon.

"I will watch anything starring Michael Shannon, which sometimes means I will end up checking this one out."
This is the type of sentence my wife would see from a student...and she teaches learning support.

Looks awesome. Gives off a 'Mad Max' meets 'The Road' type of vibe. And anything with Shannon is a must watch in my opinion. One of his latest films, The Iceman is such an underrated gem.
