The first trailer for "The Motel Life", the winner of Audience Choice Award at Rome Film Festival, has been released for viewing pleasure. It shares a glimpse at the intense bond between two brothers living on the fringes of Reno, Nevada as they are dealing with an ill-fated circumstance.
Stephen Dorff and Emile Hirsch play the lead roles. The brother duo bound together by a promise made to their dying mother decides to flee and leave the town after one of them got involved in a fatal hit-and-run accident. But guilt and remorse are catching up with them.
The drama and the emotional turmoil faced by the two brothers unfold onscreen, along with brief pencil animations cleverly inserted between the scenes.
Based on Willy Vlautin's 2006 novel of the same title, the movie is supported by Dakota Fanning and Kris Kristofferson. This story of brotherhood, shared dreams and the redemptive power of hope will come to U.S. theaters on November 8.
