Exclusive First Clip Of Wes Bentley In Things People Do

Original of Wes & Jason guns

Yesterday we brought you the very first image from Saar Klein’s upcoming indie film Things People Do. Klein, as you may or may not know, is a two time Academy Award nominee, having been honored for his editing work on The Thin Red Line and Almost Famous. His upcoming film, which is currently at the Berlin Film Festival and will be at SXSW next month, stars a cast that boasts impressive names like Wes Bentley, Jason Isaacs and Haley Bennett.

Today, in hopes of continuing to build anticipation for this intriguing project, we’re happy to be premiering the very first clip from the film. It doesn’t show off a whole lot but we get to see Bentley contemplating a recent decision he’s made and from what we can see here, Things People Do does appear to be quite interesting from a visual standpoint. Sure, some dialogue would have been nice, but for a first clip we’ll take what we can get.

If you’re unfamiliar with the plot, check out the summary below:

Things People Do follows Bill Scanlin (Bentley), a man who has recently lost his job. Afraid to tell his wife, he ends up turning to a life of crime to make money. One night, he crosses paths with Frank McTiernan (Isaacs), a detective who does uphold the law but “believes very little in its value.” The two strike up an unlikely friendship but as they become closer, Bill finds it harder to hide his secret and soon realizes that getting away with a crime is sometimes worse than getting caught.

As I said yesterday, thanks to a cast of under-appreciated yet proven talents, and an intriguing premise, I’m already marking down Things People Do as one of my must-see films of SXSW (which I’ll be attending next month).

Stay tuned as we’ll be sure to bring you a full review on the film once the festival kicks off!
