You may watch below the official trailer of Anesthesia, the upcoming drama movie written and directed by Tim Blake Nelson and starring Kristen Stewart, Sam Waterston, Glenn Close, Tim Blake Nelson, Corey Stoll, Michael K. Williams, K. Todd Freeman, Mickey Sumner, Yul Vazquez, Gloria Reuben, Jessica Hecht, and Gretchen Mol:
“A snowy New York City night, a beloved teacher, a shocking crime: this provocative drama pieces together the puzzle of a man’s life just before it changes forever. While on his way home one evening, Walter Zarrow (Sam Waterston), a popular Columbia University philosophy professor, is violently attacked on the street. Flash back one week, as actor-director Tim Blake Nelson traces the domino effect of events that led up to this seemingly senseless assault. Along the way, hidden connections between a seemingly disparate group of people—including a self-destructive student (Kristen Stewart), a hard-drinking suburban housewife (Gretchen Mol), and a desperate junkie (K. Todd Freeman)—emerge, forming a complex, engrossing mosaic of lost souls united by tragedy. The stellar ensemble cast includes Glenn Close and Michael K. Williams.”
From the trailer it feels like a live-action and darker version of Anomalisa… Life is too complicated for some people… Maybe they should just sit back and enjoy…
And here’s the film’s poster:
