Throughout the entirety of As You Are, it is painfully clear that director and co-writer Miles Joris-Peyrafitte wants the viewer to know that something bad will happen. Opening with an ominous prologue capped off by an off-screen gunshot, the film shifts into the mood that it occupies for most of its runtime: a fairly rote teen drama of the love triangle variety. To the movie’s credit, As You Are never feels forced into this box, more content to lounge around in its vaguely hangout vibe than to trap its characters in clear romantic lines. This idyllic feeling doesn’t last, and the film gradually becomes more and more focused on the plot mechanics set forth at the outset while forgetting what is ultimately the most interesting part: the characters.

"Fresh and richly intelligent." A new trailer has arrived online for an indie film titled As You Are, which premiered at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival last year to positive reviews (here's my review). I'm glad to see this is finally being released soon, it's a great film. Owen Campbell stars as a teenager caught in a love triangle between his two friends - played by Charlie Heaton and Amandla Stenberg. The cast includes Mary Stuart Masterson, Scott Cohen and John Scurti. This is best to see without knowing too much going in, because the film reveals the truth as the story plays out. The trailer features the song "Appalachian Moon" written and performed by Kevin Reilly, included on the soundtrack. I recommend giving this a look. Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Miles Joris-Peyrafitte's As You Are, direct from YouTube: Set in the early 1990's, As You Are »
