When I first heard about Daydream Nation, I was surprised by the pairing of Kat Dennings and Josh Lucas in a teacher-student love affair, and now we're getting our first peek at the onscreen lovers — in bed, no less. In this newly released trailer, Dennings plays Caroline, a teen who moves to a small town where she has a tryst with her "by-far favorite teacher" Mr. Anderson (Lucas), as well as a fellow classmate (Reece Thompson). Oh, and this being a coming-of-age story of the darker, indie variety, you also get some yelling and a car crash to finish it out.
The preview has the hazy appearance of The Virgin Suicides with music from Beach House and Metric's Emily Haines (even though Sonic Youth — whose album inspired the film's title — is notably absent). Hey, if nothing else the movie should have a good soundtrack. Take a look when you read more.
