Indie filmmakers Martha Stephens and Aaron Katz have been turning heads separately over the past little while, with their most recent efforts "Pilgrim Song" and "Cold Weather" in particular earning them attention. This past January, the pair unveiled their first co-director collaboration with "Land Ho!" at the Sundance Film Festival, and the response was good. Though we had our quibbles with it, we called the movie "easy to admire and appreciate in its quiet observations and tender form," and now you too can see what those in Park City saw, with the first trailer landing today.

Land Ho!

Indie filmmakers Martha Stephens and Aaron Katz have been turning heads separately over the past little while, with their most recent efforts "Pilgrim Song" and "Cold Weather" in particular earning them attention. This past January, the pair unveiled their first co-director collaboration with "Land Ho!" at the Sundance Film Festival, and the response was good. Though we had our quibbles with it, we called the movie "easy to admire and appreciate in its quiet observations and tender form," and now you too can see what those in Park City saw, with the first trailer landing today.

Paul Eenhoorn and Early Lynn Nelson lead the movie that follows a brassy former surgeon who convinces his ex-brother-in-law to vacation with him in Iceland. And they aren't just Americans out of place abroad, but out of step with each other, with the pair falling into an odd couple dynamic that allows them to give an elderly edge to themes of aging and friendships, all while they hit nightclubs, spas, restaurants and traverse the gorgeous landscape of Iceland itself. It's look like warm, embraceable stuff, which, in a season of explosions, is a nice relief. 

"Land Ho!" opens on July 11th. Watch below.
