"While We Were Here"

Writer-director Kat Coiro's "While We Were Here" debuts at Tribeca on April 21. Our exclusive first-look clip is below.

Shot on the glorious Amalfi Coast in black and white, Coiro's second feature (after cutesy trifle "L!fe Happens," in limited release this month) stars Kate Bosworth, Iddo Goldberg and Jamie Blackley. "Although we shot in color, the intention was always to show the film in black and white," says Coiro, who was inspired to tell this story by discovering a set of her grandmother's audio tapes. "My director of photography, Doug Chamberlain, and I wanted to make a film that felt timeless. Although it is set in the present, we wanted it to feel like a story that could exist at any time and the black and white goes a long way to making that happen."

Coiro is now in post on her third feature, "A Case of You" with Evan Rachel Wood, Justin Long, Peter Dinklage, Vince Vaughn and Sam Rockwell.

"While We Were Here" was produced by Lauren Bratman and exec produced by Greek shipping heir Paris Kasidokostas Latsis and his 1821 Pictures partner Terry Dougas. Here's Tribeca's synopsis:

In this tightly crafted relationship drama, Jane (Kate Bosworth) and her husband Leonard (Iddo Goldberg) travel to Naples—where Leonard is playing viola with the local orchestra—hoping to reinvigorate their silently disintegrating marriage and escape a personal tragedy that hangs heavily between them. Jane, left alone most days, wanders the streets listening to tapes she made of interviews with her grandmother, seeking inspiration to finish a book based on the old recordings. Facing writer's block, she takes a day trip to stunning Ischia, where she meets Caleb (Jamie Blackley), a young American leading a hermetic yet Dionysian life on the island. As the two embark on an unlikely emotional affair, Jane's carefully constructed world begins to crack open and she faces drastic changes in her life.

    Beautiful story and breathtaking cinematography. I didn't want the film to end.
