With the release of Derick Martini‘s Hick only days away, we now have the first trailer from the film. On top of that we also have some more images as well as the official synopsis for the film.
The synopsis for the film, which is penned by Andrea Portes, reads as follows:
Small town teenager Luli (CHLOË GRACE MORETZ) escapes to Las Vegas, leaving behind her alcoholic and abusive parents. Armed with her smarts, a pistol and pocket money, she hitchhikes her way west. Along the way, Luli crosses paths with Eddie (EDDIE REDMAYNE), an unstable rebel with questionable motives and Glenda (BLAKE LIVELY), a cocaine-snorting drifter on the run. Adapted from the critically acclaimed novel by Andrea Portes, this powerful story pulls you into a provocative world of drugs, seduction and murder.
The film has a strong and great source material to work with. If Martini’s directorial debut Lymelife is anything to go by, Hick could be a really great film. It premiered at the 2011 Toronto International Film Festival to mostly poor reviews but I still have hope for this one. The trailer looks pretty intense and judging by the footage shown, I’m expecting a real gritty and edgy film. Plus, I can’t wait to see Moretz in another grown up/more mature role.
Hick stars Chloe Grace Moretz, Blake Lively, Eddie Redmayne, Juliette Lewis, Alec Baldwin, Ray McKinnon and Rory Culkin and will be released on VOD on May 8th, before a limited release on May 11th.
