The Good Life

Here's the just-released trailer for the Chicago-made romantic drama The Good Life, directed by Chicago-based fillmaker Christopher Nolen (not the be confused with The Dark Knight's Christopher Nolan) who also wrote the script, with his sister Melinda.

The film, produced by Chicago filmmaker Mark Harris (Black Butterfly and founder of the Englewood Film Festival), features both Chicago and Hollywood talent, including Tangi Miller, Richard Gallion, Maya Gilbert, Christian Keyes and Mari Morrow.

The film chronicles the troubled marriage of Jacques and Marianne when fractures begin to appear in their relationship threatening to rip it apart. Jacques begins to make moves as an entreprenuer while Marianne starts feeling her own pressure to succeed and, as a result, they both wind up "sacrificing their vows and risk losing their marriage to accomplish their selfish goals."

The film will be ready for release this spring; here is the trailer:
