Movie Preview: The Merry Gentleman


It's not often that a crime drama about a hitman elicits a great big "Awwwwww!" from me, but the trailer for The Merry Gentleman caused just that reaction, placing it in the same (um, fairly limited) category as The Professional. The hitman in The Merry Gentleman is Frank, played by a gruff Michael Keaton (who also makes his directorial debut with this film), who meets a sweet and charming young lady named Kate (Kelly Macdonald) when he helps her out from underneath a fallen Christmas tree. This fact — Frank finding her under the tree, like a gift — is played for cute poignancy in the trailer, but somehow it avoids veering into too-saccharine territory.

Frank is suicidal when he meets Kate, and there's a humor-amid-darkness vibe to the film that reminds me a bit of Little Miss Sunshine. The movie is set to open May 1. It really is one of the cutest trailers I've seen lately, so to check it out,
