Netflix has released the official trailer for May December, the “deeply uncomfortable” film written by Samy Burch and directed by Todd Hayes.
About The Film:
At first glance, the film is obviously inspired by the story of Mary Kay Letourneau, the teacher who sexually assaulted her 13-year-old student, Vili Fualaau, and married him after serving her prison sentence.
In May December, popular television actor Elizabeth (Natalie Portman) heads to Savannah, Georgia, to research a part in a new film that follows a scandalous tabloid romance.
That love affair — between Gracie (Julianne Moore) and Joe (Charles Melton) — was once a fixture of the gossip pages.
After all, Joe is significantly younger than Gracie, who served time in prison when they were caught together.
When she was released, the pair were married, and they now have three children together who are about to graduate from high school.
At first glance, their untraditional marriage looks more predictable than Elizabeth expected.
But soon, her observation brings long-dormant feelings to the surface, and the decades-old scandal reveals deeper and deeper layers.
