While many weren't too familiar with Als (a.k.a. Lou Gehrig's Disease) before this summer, the hundreds of Ice Bucket Challenge videos helped spread awareness of this degenerative disease. Today, we have the first trailer for You're Not You, which stars Hilary Swank as Kate, a pianist who becomes stricken with Als.
Based on Michelle Wildgen's book, this drama follows Kate and her husband (Josh Duhamel) as they find the most unorthodox caretaker in young college student Bec (Emmy Rossum) as they both change each other's lives. Take a look at the first footage, along with two new photos from director George C. Wolfe's adaptation, co-starring Loretta Devine, Ali Larter, Jason Ritter and Marcia Gay Harden, arriving in theaters and VOD platforms October 10.
Hillary Swank and Emmy Rossum form an unusual bond in a new trailer for “You’re Not You,” a powerful film about a relationship between two women, one of whom is suffering from Als. Swank, an Academy Award winner, plays an accomplished pianist who is afflicted with Als, also known as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. As Swank’s character struggles with the disease, her husband, played by Josh Duhamel, is forced to start looking for a caregiver. ...Read More »
Awareness of Als (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or Lou Gherig's disease) has been raised exponentially thanks to the online charity trend of the Als Ice Bucket Challenge, with donations going to the Als Association, aiming to find a cure for the disease that attacks the nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord that control voluntary muscle movement. All the talk about support to fight disease is mere coincidence as a film called You're Not You is on the way featuring Hilary Swank as a famous pianist who suddenly finds herself diagnosed by the disease, and hires an unconventional assistant, Emmy Rossum, to help her cope. It looks pretty conventional and very melodramatic, but also pretty uplifting on some level, I guess. Watch! Here's the first trailer for George C. Wolfe's You're Not You, originally from EW: You're Not You is directed by George C. Wolfe (Nights in Rodanthe) and »

A second teaser trailer is out for Bennett Miller's "Foxcatcher," the Steve Carell and Channing Tatum-led drama which looks to be one of the biggest players in the upcoming awards season following the film's sterling reception at Cannes back in May.
The first trailer is out for "The Daily Show" host Jon Stewart's directorial debut "Rosewater". The story follows Iranian-born Canadian journalist Maziar Bahari (Gael García Bernal), who was arrested for espionage while covering the Iranian elections in 2009 and held for nearly four months. The film, which opens in November, premiered the other day at the Venice Film Festival to respectable but not gushing reviews.
Next comes the trailer for the Hugh Grant-led rom-com "The Rewrite". Grant stars as a former Oscar-winning screenplay writer long past his glory days who takes on a college teaching job. Marisa Tomei, Allison Janney and J.K. Simmons star.

The trailer for director George C. Wolfe’s new film You’re Not You has some incredible timing on its side. Thanks to the viral phenomenon of those ubiquitous ice bucket challenge videos, I think it’s safe to say that awareness for Als is at an all-time high. The film stars Hilary Swank as a famous pianist who is stricken with the disease and hires an unconventional assistant, Emmy Rossum, to help her cope. Going off the trailer, the film looks well made if not a little conventional. It’s hard for me to fault these kinds of movies for that though, we all need to find the uplifting elements in any tragic scenario I suppose. Hit the jump for the You’re Not You trailer. The film also stars Josh Duhamel, Marcia Gay Harden, Jason Ritter, Ali Larter, and Loretta Devina and opens in theaters and On Demand on October 10th. »

National Dog Day

IFC Films has picked up North American rights to Shawn Christensen’s drama ahead of its international premiere in Venice. Separately, The Orchard has picked up Marshall Curry’s Tribeca-winning doc Point And Shoot.
IFC plans a November roll-out for the story of a down-at-heel man whose sister asks him to babysit his 11-year-old niece for the night. The film won the SXSW narrative feature audience award.
“Curfew [Christensen’s short film on which the feature is based] was only a glimpse at Shawn’s incredible talent, and we cannot wait to bring his fully realised vision to audiences nationwide,” said Sundance Selects/IFC Films president Jonathan Sehring. “Before I Disappear marks an amazing feature directorial debut.”
