‘Juliet, Naked’ Trailer: Rose Byrne, Ethan Hawke Rock Second Chances

Usually when rock stars talk of their wasted lives they mean something entirely different than what’s at the plot of Jesse Peretz’s Juliet, Naked, the critically charmed new rom-com based on the novel by Nick Hornby (About a Boy, High Fidelity).

This new trailer for the August 17 release sets up the rock & roll anti-debauchery tale sweetly: Rose Byrne’s Annie is stuck in a long-term relationship with Chris O’Dowd’s Duncan, an obsessive fan of a long-missing obscure American rock star named Tucker Crowe (Ethan Hawke). Tucker, long sober, feels like he’s wasted the last non-creative years of his life, and when the acoustic demo of Tucker’s 25-year-old hit record surfaces, and Annie writes a harshly critical review, the rocker himself comes out of hiding to praise her insight – and talk second chances for all involved.

Peretz directs from a screenplay by Evgenia Peretz and Jim Taylor & Tamara Jenkins, based on Hornby’s novel. Juliet, Naked is produced by Albert Berger & Ron Yerxa, Barry Mendel, Judd Apatow, Jeffrey Soros.

Lionsgate and Roadside Attractions will release Juliet, Naked August 17. In the meantime, take a look at the trailer above and let us know what you think.
