Trailer Of The Week - Week #5 - Jeff Who Lives At Home

Continuing The Sundance Film Festival vibe this weekend is the new trailer for Jeff Who Lives At Home, the latest offering from mumblecore duo The Duplass Brothers. So much of this trailer feels like it shouldn't work; the awkward conversations, the detached acoustic soundtrack, the convenient plot device of the adult-who's-not-really-an-adult, the uber-geek pairing of Jason Segel and Ed Helms. But, somehow, Jeff Who Lives At Home emerges at the other end as a film that's still passably interesting, a quiet comedy with two leads who are clearly trying to do something different, assured quality provided by Susan Sarandon. Plus there's a Porsche crashing into a tree. The Duplass' latest hits the US in March, with a UK release slated to follow in April.

Trailer Of The Week is a regular Film Intel feature which picks a different tasty trailer of delectable goodness every week and presents it on Sunday for your viewing pleasure. Sometimes old, sometimes new, sometimes major, sometimes independent, sometimes brilliant, sometimes a load of old bobbins: always guaranteed to entertain.
