Netflix today revealed the official trailer for the drama-romance film, May December, which will open at the New York Film Festival on Friday September 29th. The film will then be released in select theaters on November 17th (US and Canada), and will be available to stream on Netflix on December 1st (US and Canada).
Directed by Todd Haynes (Carol, Far from Heaven), and from first-time screenwriter Samy Burch, May December stars Natalie Portman (Black Swan, Closer), Julianne Moore (Still Alice, Far from Heaven), and Charles Melton (Riverdale, The Sun Is Also a Star). Netflix also notes that ‘May December’ “is a term for a relationship with a wide age gap between partners,” in this case, Gracie (Julianne Moore) and Joe (Charles Melton).
The logline reads: “Twenty years after their notorious tabloid romance gripped the nation, a married couple (Julianne Moore, Charles Melton) buckles under the pressure when an actress (Natalie Portman) arrives to do research for a film about their past.”
Natalie Portman, Sophie Mas, Pamela Koffler, Christine Vachon, Grant S. Johnson, Tyler W. Konney, Jessica Elbaum, and Will Ferrell serve as producers.
