It’s that time of year again and the Tribeca Film Festival is just around the corner. Here are a few images and trailers here and there to give us a taste of what is to come from April 17th-28th. True to Tribeca’s characteristic range, we have new images and trailers from a documentary about a highly esteemed filmmaker, a sexy feature about preppy drug smugglers, and a romantic comedy for the social media generation with a star-studded cast.
Deep Powder

Based on real events, “Deep Powder” is about an attractive boarding school senior (Haley Bennett) picking up a townie (Shiloh Fernandez) to help her in a drug-run to Ecuador. Looking like a role Blake Lively could have turned down, Bennett (the pop star in “Music and Lyrics” and Terrence Malick's latest muse) plays an '80s-style preppy drug dealer, wreaking blonde havoc whereas Fernandez (“Evil Dead” remake) is in her wake as the ensnared local. If you haven’t guessed it, the title “Deep Powder” is a play on the word powder - the powder on skiing slopes and the powder from Ecuador aka cocaine. “An intense and sexy drama,” the trailer looks like a lost “Gossip Girl” episode revamped into an indie film, but first impressions could be wrong. “Deep Powder” begins screening on April 19th  at the Tribeca Film Festival. Check out new images and a trailer below.
