Check out the first official trailer (and poster) for Nenad Cicin-Sain‘s upcoming drama The Time Being, which had its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival. Starring Wes Bentley as a struggling artist who sells a painting to inscrutable billionaire played by Frank Langella, the movie was inspired by personal struggle and as you’re about to see – doesn’t look bad at all…
Cicin-Sain and Richard N. Gladstein stand behind the script which revolves around a struggling artist named Daniel who meets a mysterious and wealthy benefactor. Pic explores the murky relationship between two men, along with the uncertainties of marriage, parenthood and friendship.
In other words – Bentley plays the above mentioned Daniel, a young painter struggling to support his family who’s extended a lifeline in the form of a benefector, played by Langella.
After selling one of his paintings to Werner, he seeks additional commissions. Werner gives him a strange assortment of assignments instead, which raises the question of whether Werner wants to help or hurt him.
Also starring Corey Stoll, Sarah Paulson and Ahna O’Reilly, The Time Being is set to hit theaters on July 26th, 2013.
