We first mentioned The Life Before Her Eyes when a teaser trailer arrived in mid-January. The film played at the Toronto Film Festival last year under the name In Bloom and is preparing to debut in the theaters here in the US on April 18th. This latest trailer looks as good as the first one - great music accompanying a very dramatic introduction to a tragic incident. In case you missed the idea, Evan Rachel Wood experiences a high school shooting and is still haunted by it years later as a now grown-up Uma Thurman. I'm looking forward to seeing this myself, despite the very sad undertones.
Ryan Stewart at Cinematical gave this a rather positive review at Toronto. "In Bloom is structurally uneven at times, and definitely not as profound in its revelations as it wants to be, but with strong acting and a strong visual palette, it's a success." Watch the new trailer below and let us know what you think - will you be seeing this or not?
