TIFF Trailer: Hal Hartley's 'Ned Rifle' Starring Aubrey Plaza

In 1997, Hal Hartley released "Henry Fool," one of the best films of his career, but no one seemed to notice, even though it won the Best Screenplay award at Cannes. But Hartley knew he had something with the characters and world he created and in 2007 he dropped a sequel, "Fay Grim." It was far less satisfying than its predecessor, but now in 2014 he’s capping the trilogy with "Ned Rifle," and hopefully it will close the series on an up note.

Aubrey Plaza leads the followup, that also brings back Thomas Jay Ryan, James Urbaniak and Parker Posey, and puts murder front and center of the new story. Heres the official synopsis: At once a saga concerning the Grim family of Queens and how their lives are turned upside down by the arrival of the self- proclaimed genius Henry Fool, the trilogy is also an illustration of America’s grappling with ideas, art, politics, and religion over the course of 20 years. In this swiftly paced and expansive conclusion, Henry and Fay’s son Ned sets out to find and kill his father for destroying his mother’s life. But his aims are frustrated by the troublesome, sexy and hilarious Susan, whose connection to Henry predates even his arrival in the lives of the Grim family. 

"Ned Rifle" will make its World Premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival. Watch below. [via Dark Horizons]

after showing the guy pulling off his glasses for camera twice – I'm convinced April Fool would have been a better title. this is a satire of the first two films in the series, right?

Porco

Damn, this the best trailer you could've released if you wanted people to run away from your film. What a terrible job.
