Where to start with The Book of Love? I don’t want to keep you in suspense so straight away I’ll just say that this is a terrible trailer. Like, I’m 80% sure that the film is better than the trailer and I can say that pretty confidently because the trailer gives away the entire film.
Sorry, did you want to watch the movie and not know who lives and who dies? What the kid is trying to build? How she ends up working with Jason Sudeikis? Well, sorry. The trailer tells you all of that. In truth it doesn’t seem like a bad film: it has a decent cast and we get to see Sudeikis dive into dramatic territory again. Maisie Williams is a talented, young actress but that isn’t what you think about when you see her in this trailer because where there is Maisie, there is also The Accent.
The Accent is really the star of this trailer. It’s maybe Southern? Probably in the continent of North America? That is one secret that the trailer holds onto, possibly because the filmmakers couldn’t place it either. I know that accents are difficult but… wow.
I wouldn’t see this film: mainly because I already know the majority of the plot and I would be paying just to marvel at how The Accent develops throughout the film.
What did you think of The Book of Love? Will you be watching it in theatres? Where is that accent from? Let me know in the comments.
