As much as I wish this was playing at Sundance, unfortunately it is not. The Life Before Her Eyes initially debuted at the Toronto Film Festival last year under the name In Bloom, and sadly I never saw it. This wonderful trailer is an incredible introduction to what looks like a great film. And I'm not even going to try and spoil it, because I want everyone to experience it fresh. The only thing I'll say is that this stars Uma Thurman and Evan Rachel Wood as the same character at different ages and is directed by House of Sand and Fog's Vadim Perelman.
Watch the trailer for The Life Before Her Eyes:
Now that you've seen it, I'll add the plot synopsis: A woman's survivor's guilt from a Columbine-like event twenty years ago causes her present-day idyllic life to fall apart.
The Life Before Her Eyes is directed by ukrainian filmmaker Vadim Perelman, of 2003's House of Sand and Fog, and written by first-timer Emil Stern. The film is based on the bestselling novel by Laura Kasischke of the same name. The Life Before Her Eyes is currently set to arrive in limited theaters on April 18th.

User comment: By: RyanI'm a Thurman fan and it looks great but the old title and new one are pretty sucky.
