Watch: Jennifer Connelly Heals with Love in Dreamy 'Aloft' Trailer
A new trailer has been released (via Yahoo!) for “Aloft,” written and directed by Claudia Llosa. The film, which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival this year, follows struggling mother, Nana Kunning (Jennifer Connelly) and her evolution to becoming a renowned artist and healer.
In the mysterious trailer, we see Ivan express feelings of anger towards his mother, as well as tension surface between him and Jannia. Stylistically, the film looks beautiful, appearing to be very much reminiscent of Terrence Malick’s dream-like style.
“Aloft” will screen at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival, and it opens in theaters in NY and LA on May 22.
