St. Vincent trailer (10.24.14 release)

There may not be anything here we haven’t seen before, but it’s Bill Murray as we love him best… curmudgeonly and simultaneously corrupting and guiding today’s youth.  It also came in third place recently at TIFF for this year’s audience award (the winner was The Imitation Game, and the first runner-up was Learning to Drive).  It’s got supporting work from strong performers like Melissa McCarthy and Chris O’Dowd, smaller turns from Terrence Howard and Naomi Watts, and the kid opposite Murray (Jaeden Lieberher) appears natural, genuine, and unassuming, which is often not the case with young actors. People are loving Murray’s performance, and there’s talk of a possible Oscar nom.
