Featuring one hell of an interesting cast, the feature debut from Max Winkler, entitled CEREMONY, has become one of the smaller films to keep a keen eye on this year.

And now, thanks to Cinematical (and hat tip to The Playlist), we have the film’s first poster, and it’s quite wonderful.

The film stars Michael Angarano and Uma Thurman, and follows “a fast-talking young man who convinces his former best friend to go off for a weekend away to reconnect at the estate of a documentary filmmaker (Lee Pace). But there's a catch: He's not really there for friendship. He wants to declare his love, but not to his estranged friend. The kid is hoping to rekindle a romance with the filmmaker's fiancee, the lovely Uma Thurman.”

Drawing various comparisons to films from the likes of Wes Anderson and Noah Baumbach, the film also stars Jake Johnson and Reece Thompson, and features a great soundtrack with tracks from Vampire Weekend’s Ezra Koenig (covering a Paul Simon track), and a score from Eric Johnson from The Fruit Bats.

Personally, I really love this poster and I think it really hits at what the film’s narrative seems to be trying to get at. I haven’t seen the film yet, but it is set to hit VOD on March 4 with an April 8 theatrical release date, so it won’t be too long until we get a chance to check this one out.
