In Joe Swanberg's "Hannah Takes The Stairs," Greta Gerwig stars as a young woman who falls for a trio of men one summer, including "The Puffy Chair"'s Mark Duplass, actor Kent Osborne, and filmmaker Andrew Bujalski ("Mutual Appreciation," "Funny Ha Ha")...with just two weeks to go until the film opens at IFC Center in New York City, IFC First Take has posted the film's trailer on YouTube. There's no doubt that this is one of the most exciting and accomplished narrative indie films to hit theaters this year, so far.
In the words of IFC, "Alternately heartbreaking and hilarious, and featuring stunning naturalistic performances, 'Hannah Takes The Stairs" is a delicate look at friendship, ambition, and the pursuit of happiness that heralds the return of a truly independent form of American moviemaking."
indieWIRE will be taking a closer look at the film (and a few other so-called "mumblecore" movies) at an Apple Store, Soho event in NYC on August 23rd at 7 p.m. Check out an exclusive scene from the film posted on Monday at indieWIRE.com (also via YouTube).
