Daydream Nation -Trailer
Red Carpet Diary video: Kat Dennings at Toronto International Film Festival's Red Carpet premiere of 'Daydream Nation'
Daydream Nation starring Kat Dennings, Josh Lucas, Reece Thompson, Andie MasDowell & Rachel Blanchard, opens May 6th. Directed by Mike Goldbach.
In case you forgot, Dennings was the female lead of the popular Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist from 2008 and played the pregnant daughter of Steve Carell's girlfriend (Catherine Keener) in 2005's comedy blockbuster, The 40 Year Old Virgin.
Yes, she's playing a high school student again, but...
Daily Variety says "Juno as reimagined by David Lynch," which I'll admit, gets me interested.
Personally, I think she needs to get herself hitched to a drama set in WWII, since her face reminds me of certain actresses of that era I can think of, and minus some of her modern mannerisms, she'd be excellent as the confident Rosie the Riveter-type girlfriend back-home that some GI in Europe is using as motivation to get thru the day, and is penning letters to.
Or, perhaps as Rachel Weisz's combative, headstrong younger cousin who stays with her for awhile immediately after the war has torn their families apart?
Something where she wears a real nice hat?
Like something you'd see here on these popular sites I've visited before:
Or, if she wanted to be 'saucy": http://www.flickr.com/photos/hollywoodplace/5598287245/
(My mother sewed a lot before we moved in 1968 to North Miami Beach from Memphis, and she was VERY proficient at it, too, so some of the photos at the sites above seemed very, very familiar to me. I can still recall the whirring noise of her black Singer sewing machine really going to it, a soothing sound after ahile; the many cloth tomato-red pin cushions that I always played with on the couch out of boredom while watching her and the TV; the fashion/sewing pattern stores in North Dade that I got dragged to along with my two younger sisters, which -like the nice white-glove restaurant upstairs at the Burdine's at the 163rd Street Shopping Center in North Miami Beach- have NOT been around for eons.
Hopefully, this is Kat Dennings' last film playing a savvy, wise-beyond-her-years high school student/ingenue.
I'm sure she probably hopes so as well!
