Ben Foster Here

Despite finding solid reviews after its 2011 Sundance premiere, music video director Braden King's debut feature, “Here,” is just now finding a theatrical release, and there's an evocative trailer to prove it.

Vulture brings us our first look at the film, which stars Ben Foster as an American cartographer working throughout Armenia, where he stumbles across the beautiful photographer Gadarine (Lubna Azabal, last seen in “Incendies”). After coincidence brings them together twice, they strike off on a road trip of their own, exploring a romance woven between the complex views of nature along the way. Boasting an exquisitely composed visual style throughout that complements the good-looking cast, the trailer also provides glimpses of Foster and Azabal's relationship, which seems to strike a mature, occasionally spiritual tone.

Once seemingly the second name on casting director's lists for the “Ryan Gosling role,” Foster has turned into quite the character actor in the past few years, taking a variety of nuanced roles in excellent films. While he has not yet attained a meme (which might be for the best), his turns in “The Messenger” and “Six Feet Under” show a compelling actor ready for a challenge, which “Here” appears to embody in this brief glimpse.

Hopefully that complexity translates to the entire film, as “Here” opens April 13th in NYC before rolling out to other cities.
