Just as night follows day, so trailers generally follow posters, and hot on the heels of our exclusive premiere of the one-sheet for Ry Russo-Young's acclaimed Sundance hit "Nobody Walks" yesterday, Apple have premiered the first trailer for the film. And it looks pretty good, all in all. Co-written by "Girls" sensation Lena Dunham, the film follows Martine, a 23-year-old artist from New York City, who stays in the pool house of a Los Angeles family to complete work on her art film. But the characters' worlds are quickly upheaved as lust, desire and deception come creeping into the seemingly idyllic setting.

As the trailer reveals, the cast is pretty excellent, with Olivia Thirlby in the lead role, "The Office"'s John Krasinski and Rosemarie 'We Will See Her In Anything, Even "The Watch" ' DeWitt as the married couple she stays with, and folks like Justin Kirk and Dylan McDermott in support. Featuring a score by LCD Soundsystem offshoots Fall On Your Sword, the film comes Playlist-endorsed, with our Sundance review calling it "an emotionally complex, acutely observed and sensual film." Magnolia Pictures will release it to VOD on September 6th before it comes to theaters on October 12th. Watch the trailer below, or in HD over at Apple

    This movie gives me a Laurel Canyon vibe.

    I saw this at Sundance and Rosemarie DeWitt is fantastic! Also, Justin Kirk steals the scenes he's in!.

    Olivia Thirlby: New poster girl for shallow, self-obsessed 20-somethings

    That's what I was thinking as I watched this trailer. She looks like a precise caricature of a girl I know (a girl who is so into herself that she's oblivious to how poorly she treats other people)

    Unfortunately, it looks like the character here is just a beautiful, brilliant artist who can't help but attract married men, so I'm confident every selfish twentysomething with a pixie haircut and skinny jeans will find it exhilarating to have their earthy, individual style represented here.

    Hope this is the beginning of Krasinski getting decent film roles and not garbage like License to Wed, Big Miracle, etc.

    Saw this at Sundance UK. Sadly it's rather unbearable. Ela, your suspicions are spot on.

    That Bieber hair was a really bad choice. Still, I'll see this.
