While critical praise is always appreciated, and something that the forthcoming “Diamond Tongues” has no shortage of, sometimes the sweetest words of appreciation comes from fellow filmmakers. And co-directors Pavan Moondi and Brian Robertson caught the attention of “Results” and “Computer Chess” filmmaker Andrew Bujalski with their film. “A riveting, screen-commanding performance from a fresh face is a rare and magical thing–rarer still is that it lands in the lap of filmmakers who know what to do with it. ‘Diamond Tongues’ had me start to finish,” he said. And today we have the exclusive trailer for the movie so you can get a sense of what Bujalski is raving about.
Led by Leah Goldstein, the movie follows a young woman and aspiring actress who struggles to deal with the success achieved by her friends, while she continues to have difficulties making her dreams come true. And this trailer, powered by Sunset Rubdown‘s “Us Ones In Between,” captures the film’s comedic and melancholy spirit quite nicely.
