Gloria (Anne Hathaway) is an out-of-work girl who, after getting kicked out of her apartment by her boyfriend, is forced to leave her life in New York and move back to her hometown. When news reports surface that a giant creature is destroying Seoul, South Korea, Gloria gradually comes to the realization that she is somehow connected to his far-off phenomenon. As events begin to spin out of control, Gloria must determine why her seemingly insignificant existence has such a colossal effect on the fate of the world.
With just a over a week until release, this clip gives a great look at the performances in Nacho Vigalondo’s Colossal. It’s an indie-comedy that also happens to be a sci-fi monster movie, and as far-fetched as that premise is, all of the trailers have built a good case for it being an effective combo. This little snippet of the indie-comedy side is a solidly acted bit of naturally written dialogue, and only adds to that impression.
Colossal saw a limited release April 7th, 2017.
