The Kindness of Strangers is another tale in which the film weaves multiple people into one familiar story of helpfulness.
In time for Valentine’s Day, The Kindness of Trailer stars Zoe Kazan (Ruby Sparks, The Big Sick), Andrea Riseborough (Birdman, Oblivion), Caleb Landry Jones (Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, X-Men: First Class), Tahar Rahim (A Prophet, The Past), Bill Nighy (Love Actually, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest), and Jay Baruchel (Goon, This Is the End).
Here’s the short synopsis of the film:
In New York City, six strangers’ lives intersect in a modern tale of ordinary people struggling to find help, hope, and love. As the unlikely group comes together, they discover that liberation and triumph lie in each other’s hands.
Lone Scherfig directed and wrote The Kindness of Strangers.
In a clip from Vertical Entertainment, Clara (Kazan) tries to find a way out of a conversation from her ex-husband and father of her child. An opportunity arises when her son vomits, and they escaped out the backdoor of the Chinese restaurant into a New York alley.
I’m looking forward to Lone Scherfig’s The Kindness of Strangers because she directed a few indie darlings over the past couple of decades. Some of her films included One Day with Anne Hathaway and Jim Sturgess and An Education with Carey Mulligan and Peter Sarsgaard. My favorite will be 2000’s Italian for Beginners, in which help sparked her into romantic dramas.
Additionally, we need some of those kindness stories in theaters that will make you feel good about others.
