Christopher Webster [Celluloid 02.24.12] drama crime

So here we have your first look at the poster for Nick Cassavetes' upcoming drug drama, Yellow. A simple and stylish one sheet to be sure, it features lead actress and writer Heather Wahlquist sittin' in a giant yellow pill just to remind you that this one's about the drugs.

Mary Holmes has a great life. She's young, beautiful, lives in Los Angeles. She has a good job teaching at a private elementary school and four beautiful children. But things aren't always what they seem. Mary has problems. She has a difficult time feeling things, and the fact that she eats twenty Vicodin a day doesn't help.

She sees a psychiatrist for the disconnect daydreams she keeps having, and her younger sister with Tourettes hates her. And when she loses her job for sleeping with one of the fathers on Parent's night, she decides to go home. And that's when the fun really starts. The dreams which seemed so random now start to take real shape as we understand where she came from.

From young and in love, drug dealing on the road, to her father's slow painful death, from questions of love and incest to her older sister's descent into insanity, the secret that destroyed her entire family reveals itself on her journey back home, along with Mary's ultimate responsibility for it. Busby Berkeley, Cirque de Soleil, Circus freaks, and human farm animals all make appearances in this hallucinogenic tale of love and comeuppance.

Not sure when this one's coming out, but Yellow stars Sienna Miller, Daveigh Chase, Lucy Punch, Ben Foster, Melanie Griffith and Gena Rowlands.
