Trailer Watch: Toast - Directed by SJ Clarkson

Opens in NY on September 23rd and LA on October 7. Here's the description: "TOAST is the ultimate nostalgia trip through everything edible in 1960’s Britain. Based on the heart-wrenchingly bittersweet story of food writer, Nigel Slater’s childhood, and set to the songs of Dusty Springfield, TOAST is a delicious love letter to the tastes and smells that a young boy associates with his journey into adulthood."
