Take a look to this teaser poster of Ithaca, the upcoming drama movie directed by Meg Ryan and starring Meg Ryan, Tom Hanks, Alex Neustaedter, Sam Shepard, Jack Quaid, and Hamish Linklater:
Be brave. Do good.
“In a small town in California’s San Joaquin Valley, 14-year-old Homer Macauley (Alex Neustaedter) is determined to be the best and fastest bicycle telegraph messenger anyone has ever seen. His older brother has gone to war, leaving Homer to look after his widowed mother, his older sister, and his 4-year-old brother, Ulysses. And so it is that as spring turns to summer in 1942, Homer delivers messages of love, hope, pain and death, to the good people of Ithaca. He will grapple with one message that will change him forever – from a boy into a man. Based on Pulitzer Prize-winning author William Saroyan’s 1943 novel, The Human Comedy, ITHACA is the quintessential wartime tale of the home front. It is a coming-of-age story about the exuberance of youth, the sweetness of life, the sting of death and the modesty and sheer goodness that lives in each and every one of us.”
I’m curious about the film’s bicycle. Will it look like the one on the poster?
Anyway, here’s a video from the set:
