Trailer for Taylor Hackford’s LOVE RANCH hits

We are now just about half way through the year, or getting there fast, and with that comes the onslaught of trailers for films that we may be talking quite a bit about come this fall.

One of these trailers comes from Taylor Hackford, the director of RAY, and is for a film called THE LOVE RANCH.  It tells the story of the couple behind the first legal brothel in Nevada, and stars Helen Mirren, Joe Pesci, Sergio Peris-Mencheta, Gina Gershon, Taryn Manning, Bryan Cranston and Bai Ling, just to name a few.

While I’m not the biggest fan of Hackford’s work like RAY and AN OFFICER AND A GENTLEMAN, I do really dig this trailer.  The film looks like a really interesting story, Pesci looks to be back and on his top game, and the only real flaw I think comes in the chemistry between Mirren and Peris-Mencheta.  It seems completely false and completely awkward, and while the trailer hints that it may be what they are going for, it really just doesn’t work for me.  That said, to me, it screams Oscar potential, so here’s to hoping it lives up to it.

What do you think about this film?
