Today marks some kind of perfect storm of local rock n’ roll cultural goodness. That’s right, kiddos: it’s the debut of the trailer for Matt McCormick’s new movie, "Some Days Are Better Than Others." Yep…it’s the flick starring James Mercer from The Shins and Carrie Brownstein, the ex-Sleater-Kinney guitarist.
Let’s let the press release do the talking:
Shot primarily in Portland and the surrounding areas, Some Days are Better than Others is a poetic, character-driven independent feature film starring James Mercer, Carrie Brownstein, Renee Roman Nose, and David Wodehouse. A charmingly melancholy look at abandonment, Some Days are Better Than Others asks the question, “Why do the good times slip by so fast while the sad times seem so sticky?” The film thematically explores heartbreak, abandonment, and alternative forms of communication while observing an interweaving web of awkward characters who seem to get kicked down by life time and time again. Above all else, Some Days are Better Than Others is a quirky black comedy about the disposable relics of our always-consuming society. It’s a film about growing up, growing old, and holding on to hope while looking for second chances.
Here’s the trailer:
