Trailer for “Damsel” Hints at an Off-Kilter Western Romantic Comedy


Well, The Zellner Brothers (David and Nathan), the minds behind the wondrous Kumiko, The Treasure Hunter, have their next genre bending offering, Damsel, on deck.

From the trailer, the look and feel of a Western movie gets subverted by the almost quixotic journey of a young man played by Robert Pattinson to marry the love of his life played by Mia Wasikowska, despite her feelings to the contrary.

Oh yeah, the adorable tiny horse is almost some frosting of magical realism added to the whole ordeal. In short, we’re sold on going to seeing it as soon as we can.

See for yourself in said trailer, then look for Damsel in theaters on June 22nd.
