The second trailer for Tamara Drewe has been dropped via Yahoo!
Filled with lust and humour and starring Gemma Arterton (Prince of Persia, Disappearance of Alice Creed) as the eponymous Tamara, the film is based on Posy Simmonds’ well-loved graphic novel, which in turn was inspired by Thomas Hardy’s Far From the Madding Crowd.
Tamara Drewe has transformed herself. Plastic surgery, a different wardrobe, a smouldering look, have given her confidence and a new and thrilling power to attract, which she uses recklessly. Often just for the fun of it. People are drawn to Tamara Drewe, male and female.
In the remote village where her late mother lived Tamara arrives to clear up the house. Here she becomes an object of lust, of envy, the focus of unrequited love, a seductress. To the village teenagers she is ‘plastic-fantastic’, a role model. Ultimately, when her hot and indiscriminate glances lead to tragedy, she is seen as a man-eater, a heartless marriage wrecker, a slut.”
The film is directed by Stephen Frears (The Queen, Mrs Henderson Presents) and is a Ruby Films Production, produced by Alison Owen (The Other Boleyn Girl, Elizabeth) Tracey Seaward (The Constant Gardener, The Queen) and Paul Trijbits. Also stars Dominic Cooper, Roger Allam, Luke Evans, Bill Camp and Tamsin Greig.
Tamara Drewe is scheduled to hit US cinemas on October 8, 2010
