I’m not even going to try to go and explain this film, so here is a synopsis and the teaser trailer for The Nowhere Inn to give you an idea.
Synopsis: From real-life friends Annie Clark (a.k.a. GRAMMY award-winning recording and touring artist St. Vincent, XX) and Carrie Brownstein (Portlandia, Sleater-Kinney, the best-selling Hunger Makes Me a Modern Girl) comes the metafictional account of two creative forces banding together to make a documentary about St. Vincent’s music, touring life, and on-stage persona. But they quickly discover unpredictable forces lurking within subject and filmmaker that threaten to derail the friendship, the project, and the duo’s creative lives. The debut feature film from Bill Benz (Portlandia, At Home With Amy Sedaris) comes a densely woven, laugh-out-loud funny and increasingly fractured commentary on reality, identity, and authenticity. A story of two close friends who attempt to wrestle the truth out of a complex subject before the hall of mirrors that is their artistic lives devours them completely.
I’m puzzled if this is a documentary or scripted feature, but I sure am intrigued. The teaser trailer is mysterious and reveals very little about the film. That’s a good thing. Dakota Johnson is in the film, so I’m interested to see what we get to see from her in this.
