A first trailer arrived yesterday for “Charlie Countryman.” The film, which is the feature debut of commercials director Fredrik Bond, centers on a young man (Shia Labeouf) who while on a European vacation falls in love and trouble simultaneously when he meets Gabi (Evan Rachel Wood, playing a heavily accented cellist) and discovers she’s already attracted the attentions of a vicious Romanian gangster (Mads Mikkelsen).
Melissa Leo, Rupert Grint, Til Schweiger and Vincent D’Onofrio round out the cast.
The film, which was originally titled “The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman,” has played Sundance and Berlin, among other fests, to relatively positive reviews. THR, for one, called it “a promising feature debut with this fanciful crime-drama
romance that gratifyingly eschews strict genre classification.”
The film hits theaters November 15. Watch below.
