Trailer Watch: Shotgun Stories

The trailer for Shotgun Stories, a very promising looking indie thriller by writer-director Jeff Nichols, is up at its official site. Described as tracking a feud between "two sets of half brothers following the death of their father" and "set against the cotton fields and back roads of Southeast Arkansas, these brothers discover the lengths to which each will go to protect their family."

The trailer is, perhaps, a little corny, but just based on the footage we see and the soundtrack music at the site, it looks like it’s a little more intelligent than the redneck rampage flick the trailer seems to promise — something more akin to David Gordon Green (All the Real Girls) or the Coen Brothers…?

Shotgun Stories is currently on the festival circuit (dates and locations are at the official site). With luck, we’ll see it in a limited release soon.
