Every family has a secret and Francis Ford Coppola sums it up in upcoming drama 'Tetro' as seen through its official trailer.
The first trailer to Francis Ford Coppola's "Tetro" has made its way out. Teasing a look into the filmmaker's first original screenplay since 1974's "The Conversation", the promotional video is dominated by black-and-white footage with splashes of colors seen nearing the end. It features mostly Alden Ehrenreich's Bennie and Vincent Gallo's Tetro.
Dubbed to be Coppola's most personal film yet, "Tetro" tells a bittersweet story of two brothers, Bennie and Tetro, of family lost and found, and of the conflicts and secrets within a highly creative Argentine-Italian family. It begins with 17-year-old Bennie traveling to Buenos Aires to find his long-missing older brother Tetro.
When Bennie finally finds his volatile and melancholy poet brother, he learns that Tetro is not at all what he expected. In the course of staying with Tetro and his girlfriend Miranda, he discovers his brother's near-finished play that leads the two to grapple with the haunting experiences of their shared past and to renew their brotherhood bond.
Written and directed by Academy Award-winning filmmaker Francis Ford Coppola, the drama movie stars Vincent Gallo, Alden Ehrenreich, Maribel Verdu, Klaus Maria Brandauer and Carmen Maura. Being released independently by Coppola's own American Zoetrope, it has been tentatively set to debut in limited theaters across the U.S. on June 11.
