Trailer for Ryan Gosling's Lost River starring Christina Hendricks

Warner Bros. has gamely tried to make sense out of Ryan Gosling's directorial debut, LOST RIVER, with an official trailer, which can be seen below. The film itself is reportedly an ambitious mess (if we're to believe most of the reviews out of last year's Cannes Film Festival) and the first teaser was quite silly. That in mind, I'll admit WB did well here, presenting us with a preview that is compellingly abstract.

Starring Christina Hendricks, Eva Mendes, Matt Smith, Saoirse Ronan and Iain De Caestecker, LOST RIVER is...

... a dark fairy tale about love, family and the fight for survival in the face of danger. In the virtually abandoned city of Lost River, Billy (Christina Hendricks), a single mother of two, is led into a macabre underworld in her quest to save her childhood home and hold her family together. Her teenage son Bones (Iain De Casestecker) discovers a mystery about the origins of Lost River that triggers his curiosity and sets into motion an unexpected journey that will test his limits and the limits of those he loves.

LOST RIVER will open April 10 for a theatrical run in New York and Los Angeles and will also be available same day via national digital release in the U.S. This news comes the same day as the announcement of the film’s North American premiere.

being part of the SXSW Film Festival, running March 13 – 21 in Austin Texas.
