Demolition and The Dressmaker Trailers
Fast-rising filmmaker, Jean-Marc Vallee, has entertained audiences each other the past two years with acclaimed hits such as Dallas Buyers Club and Wild. He has managed to direct Matthew McConaughey and Jared Leto to Oscar wins while nearly pulling off the same feat with Reese Witherspoon (who still landed in the top five). This year Vallee returns with another superb talent, Jake Gyllenhaal, in the comedy-drama Demolition. After the tragic loss of his wife in a car accident, Davis (Gyllenhaal) has struggled to piece his life back together. And what begins as a complaint letter to a vending machine company, eventually transforms into a string of letters that catch the eye of a customer service rep (Naomi Watts) who develops an unlikely bond with Davis. Oddly, Demolition finds an early-year release in April 2016.
After a long while away from the director's chair, Jocelyn Moorhouse returns this year with The Dressmaker, a drama that's receiving a modest amount of awards season buzz. Kate Winslet stars as Tilly Dunnage, a stylish woman who returns to her small hometown in Australia and, with the aid of her sewing machine, transforms the women in town and exacts revenge on those who wronged her in the past. The Dressmaker is currently making the festival rounds and is expected to find a release later this year.
