Trailer Watch: Wong Kar-Wai's My Blueberry Nights

Moviefone/AOL Movies has added the trailer for In the Mood for Love director Wong Kar-Wai’s My Blueberry Nights, starring Norah Jones, Jude Law, Natalie Portman, David Strathairn, and Rachel Weisz. It’s devoid of dialogue and so any idea of what the story is about, but it’s beautifully lyrical, as you would expect from Kar-Wai. The story, for those who haven’t been waiting impatiently for this movie to hit American theaters, is, Elizabeth (Jones), who hits the road after a bad break-up,

leaving behind a life of memories, a dream and a soulful new friend — a café owner (Jude Law) — all while in search of something to mend her broken heart. Waitressing her way through the country, Elizabeth befriends others whose yearnings are greater than hers, including a troubled cop (David Strathairn) and his estranged wife (Rachel Weisz) and a down-on-her luck gambler (Natalie Portman) with a score to settle.

Through these individuals, Elizabeth witnesses the true depths of loneliness and emptiness, and begins to understand that her own journey is part of a greater exploration within herself.

My Blueberry Nights hits limited release on April 4, 2008. Kar-Wai fans will want to read this terrific article about the film appeared in the New York Times way back in November.
