Making movies is hard work, but if you get off the right foot with good source material and a solid cast, you can make your life easier. And that seems to be the case for BBC One who have rounded up a nice ensemble of players for their upcoming dramatic thriller.

Mia Wasikowska Reveals Gus Van Sant Cut A Silent Version Of 'Restless'While we may not always understand every artistic endeavour taken on by James Franco -- like his attempt at a music career -- but we have to say this one does interest us.

Eclectic Filmmaker Talks James Franco, 'My Private Idaho,' Dennis Hopper & His New Coming-Of-Age RomanceThe title of Gus Van Sant’s latest picture, “Restless” might as well describe the director himself. Genre-hopping, making movies for both the Hollywood system and himself, and long a fixture on the indie film scene, he’s undoubtedly one of the most significant American filmmakers working today. His lastest is a far cry from his more experimental entries like "Gerry," "Last Days" or even the "Psycho" remake, tackling the story of two teens in love even as one of them suffers from terminal cancer. It's yet another new direction for Van Sant and one that will likely land him new fans while giving longtime followers of the director something else to discuss and consider as part of his eclectic filmography.

Hello friends. Your mission, should you choose to accept it (WHICH YOU WILL CAUSE I SAID SO) is to go see "Drive" this weekend. There is no other movie playing in theaters. Nope, not one. There, this column is over. Done! "Drive" is all there is to see. Worth seeing anyway. And I would be remiss if I didn't champion truly original and excellent filmmaking in this column. Do not go see "Lion King 3D." We are not children (if you are a child, why are you reading this? Stop now). Don't you remember that talk we had back when "Green Whatever" came out? We don't watch movies for kids. Especially not ones we already saw 10 years ago. Ok, rant over. Let's get down and dirty.

But 'Restless' Helmer Was Never Going To Direct Artist Drama 'The Golden Suicides'Gus Van Sant is not an easily predictable director. His films are always instantly identifiable, but can vary between experimental, difficult pictures like "Gerry" and "Last Days," to more nakedly commercial fare like "Finding Forrester," and, occasionally, as in "To Die For" and "Milk," a sweet spot in between. His latest, "Restless," is another left turn, a quirky teen romance from a first time screenwriter, Jason Lew, that stars Henry Hopper, son of Dennis, and "Alice in Wonderland" lead Mia Wasikowska.

Review: Gus Van Sant's 'Restless' A Sappy Misfire From A Director Capable Of So Much More

Gus Van Sant has long been fascinated by young people – the way they interact with each other, the way they move, the way they emote, and, most importantly, the way they die (or at the very least face their mortality head-on – you could even lump his interesting, if aimless, "Psycho" remake in there). But he's never dared to make a movie as self-indulgent, pointless, mushy, and boring as "Restless," one that borrows heavily from movies much better than it ("Harold & Maude," "Love Story," "An American Werewolf in London," countless French New Wave flicks), and fails to leave even the slightest impression, beyond the thought of never, ever, ever wanting to see it again.

Originally set to be released by Sony this past January 25th, then bumped over to their arthouse arm, Sony Pictures Classics and then selected as the opening film of the Un Certain Regard program at the Cannes Film Festival in May, Gus Van Sant's "Restless" has had a bit of a bumpy ride to the big screen. Now set to hit theaters this fall, a new trailer for the film has landed and you couldn't find a quirkier movie this side of a bad Wes Anderson knockoff.

Cannes Review: Gus Van Sant's 'Restless' Is An Endless Number Of Quirks Searching For A Movie

Easily the first hard flop of the Cannes Film Festival, the warning signs were there but perhaps we didn't pay them much mind. If everything had gone according to the original plan, "Restless" would have already come and gone in theaters and never hit the Croisette. And that probably would have been the better for everyone involved. Instead, a rightfully nervous Sony scuttled a planned January release and shuffled the film over to their indie division Sony Pictures Classics to handle. Kudos for them for getting the film into the opening slot of the Un Certain Regard section of the festival, because after seeing it, that must have been nothing short of a coup.

So Cannes is underway, with Woody Allen's "Midnight In Paris" kicking things off, to surprisingly excellent notices -- if you haven't read our review yet, our man thought it was one of Allen's best efforts in quite some time. But does it mean that the images and clips from the films unspooling in the South of France are done? Of course it doesn't.
