Guy and Madeline on a Park Bench may sound like an unusual name for a film and I guess it is. It is a musical and a drama, with Jason Palmer as Guy, a trumpeter and Desiree Garcia as the seeming object of his desire, Madeline.

Director and writer Damien Chazelle won an Emerging Filmmaker Award for the film at the Denver International Film Festival and now we have a beguiling though not especially informative poster. The words “Stanley Tucci Presents” sound intriguing, though there is no mention on IMDb of the nature or extent of his involvement in the project. From the various quotes on the poster it seems to be a roaring success with the critics and although the film has played the festival circuit throughout 2009 and secured a US release in July 2010, there is no word yet on when UK audiences might be able to catch it.

You can catch the trailer over at the film’s official website, which doesn’t help in identifying what the film is really about but gives a great feel for its seemingly unique style.

Thanks to IMP for the poster.

Dave has been writing for HeyUGuys since mid-2010 and has found them to be the most intelligent, friendly, erudite and insightful bunch of film fans you could hope to work with. He's gone from ham-fisted attempts at writing the news to interviewing Lawrence Bender, Renny Harlin and Julian Glover, to writing articles about things he loves that people have actually read. He has fairly broad tastes as far as films are concerned, though given the choice he's likely to go for Con Air over Battleship Potemkin most days. He's pretty sure that 2001: A Space Odyssey is the most overrated mess in cinematic history.
