TRAILER: Synecdoche, New York...

Hey guys! Today I have the pleasure of bringing you all the first trailer for the highly anticipated directorial debut from Adaptation scribe, Charlie Kaufman, called Synecdoche, New York...heres the trailer...

Synecdoche, New York stars Phillip Seymour Hoffman, Katherine Keener, Hope Davis, Emily Watson, and Jennifer Jason Leigh and as I said before, is the directorail debut of Charlie Kaufman. Kaufman is the Oscar nominated writer for Adaptation, Being John Malkovich, and also wrote Confessions of A Dangerous Mind, and Eternal Sunshine of The Spotless Mind. Here is the plot synopsis from /film...

Synecdoche, New York explores nightmares that are all too realistic and human. Its hero, Caden Cotard (Philip Seymour Hoffman) is a 40-year-old local theater director in Schenectady whose life is collapsing around him. His marriage to his artist wife Adele (Catherine Keener) is on its last legs while at the same time he is stricken with a series of increasingly catastrophic illnesses. He is afraid he will die any moment having never accomplished anything important in his life. When he receives a MacArthur Grant, he decides to use the windfall to stage a massive theater piece in NYC, determined to create The Great Piece of Art and leave something as true, honest and heartbreaking as life itself. It’s one of those rare films that deals with death, excruciating illness, gross bodily fluids, despair, heartbreak and bad sex but can still bring a twinkle to the eye.

What do you guys think of this trailer? I personally really like it. It looks like it will be a dark dark flick, and since it's a Kufman written film, it will also require multiple viewings. I've heard really great things about this coming out of Toronto, and I like this trailer a lot...what about you guys???
