It's been some time since Julia Stiles was heard to make her directorial debut in a short feature titled "Raving" of which script she also wrote. Good news is that the trailer for the drama is now available on the web at http://raving.elle.com.
Inspired by a feature in ELLE's October Personal Style issue, the picture not only marks Stiles' venture into directing field but the beginning of ELLE's foray into original branded entertainment as well. Starring well-known names like Zooey Deschanel and Bill Irwin, it explores the emotional connection between a bright, rebellious young woman and a lonely, disassociated older man after a chance encounter on a New York street corner.
Seating as producers are Pamela Hirsch, Daniela Taplin Lundberg, Galt Niederhoffer, and Celine Rattray with Anastas N. Michos handling cinematography and Kalina Ivanov taking production design matters. Look for the premiere of the flick on the Sundance Channel on Tuesday, May 8 at 8:30 PM.
