There’s a new trailer for the latest film from Robert De Niro’s shingle, Tribeca Films, and Well Go USA Entertainment. It’s the first trailer to refer to the film by its new title, “The Truth About Emanuel.” When it premiered at the Sundance Film Festival, where it was an Official Selection, earlier this year it was under the title, “Emanuel and The Truth About Fishes.”
The film’s stars include Jessica Biel and Alfred Molina, and it tells the tale of a troubled young woman who becomes obsessed with her neighbor (Biel), who reminds her of her dead mother. The trailer paints the film as a thriller with a “Single White Female” feel to it, but most of the press on the movie is that it’s more of a genre-crossing psychological piece.
On the film’s scope and tone, Tribeca Chief Creative Officer, Geoffrey Gilmore says:
â€œFrancesca Gregoriniâ€™s superb Emanuel and the Truth about Fishes is a rare and remarkable work of mixed genres and expectations. A taut surprising and original thriller featuring a career best performance from Jessica Biel and a breakout role by Kaya Scodelario.â€
The film’s director, Francesca Gregorini, says:
“At its core ‘Emanuelâ€¦’ is about salvation and redemption. Unable or unwilling to save ourselves, we rise to the challenge to save another and in so doing ultimately save ourselves. ‘Emanuelâ€¦’ is a tale that unfolds and unravels in secrets; the secrets we keep from each other and the secrets we keep from ourselves (often the most dangerous variety), creating blind-spots that will at best keep us from moving forward, at worst derail us completely.”
