To be honest, the only reason I’m interested in Jill Soloway
‘s upcoming Afternoon Delight
is… well, this new poster (the previous banana poster
was pretty cool, too). Apparently, this comedy-drama will help us find the cure for the common marriage, which perfectly explains the “sexual awakening of a woman in a sexless marriage” plot. Head inside to see the latest trailer and let us know what you think about the whole thing!
As we previously reported, Soloway directed the movie from her own script which revolves around a couple who hires a stripper to be their live-in nanny.
Not hard to guess that the movie focuses on marriage, motherhood and the ennui of thirtysomething hipster living, right?
In case you forgot the official synopsis:
Rachel is a quick-witted and lovable, yet tightly coiled, thirty-something steeped in the creative class of Los Angeles’s bohemian, affluent Silver Lake neighborhood. Everything looks just right – chic modernist home, successful husband, adorable child, and a hipster wardrobe. So why is she going out of her gourd with ennui? Deadened by the stultifying realities of preschool auctions, a lackluster sex life, and career that’s gone kaput, Rachel visits a strip club to spice up her marriage and meets McKenna, a stripper whom she becomes obsessed with saving. She decides to adopt McKenna as her live-in nanny, and this bold move unleashes unimagined and colorful waves of change into her life and community.
The film premiered at the Sundance Film Festival
2013 and earned director Jill Soloway
the directing award in the U.S. Dramatic Competition.
