Monogamy Trailer: Chris Messina And His Lens Are Watching You
The film selection at the Tribeca Film Festival tends to be pretty hit-or-miss, but one of the movies from last year that I really enjoyed was Monogamy, the narrative feature debut from Murderball documentarian Dana Adam Shapiro, and starring Chris Messina in a role that really gets away from his cuddly good-guy parts in Six Feet Under and Julie & Julia. He stars as a Brooklyn-based photographer who becomes obsessed with a mysterious, exhibitionist blonde (Meital Dohan) after receiving a mysterious work assignment; all the while he's growing distant from his fiancee (Rashida Jones) and having doubts about this entire commitment to marriage.
The film isn't perfect but definitely interesting, well-photographed and well-acted-- and if you're a resident of modern, wealthy Brooklyn, kind of interesting as a hometown effort. Oscilloscope picked up Monogamy at Tribeca last year and will release the film starting March 11. Check out the trailer below or in HD at Apple, and let me know if you're intrigued in the comments. You can also check out the video interview I did during Tribeca with Messina, Dohan and Shapiro here.
