Bellflower has been gaining attention since the movie was a hit at both the Sundance and SXSW film festivals. This new trailer for it sure makes it seem very . . . fiery! You can read the full description of the film below the jump, but it seems like it’s going to be about adolescence, violence, confusion and love. There’s also a lot of flamethrowers. Pretty much everything I’ve heard about the movie so far has been positive, though it sure looks intense!
Bellflower follows two friends as they venture out into the world to begin their adult lives. All their free time is spent building flame-throwers and weapons of mass destruction in hopes that a global apocalypse will occur and clear the runway for their imaginary gang “Mother Medusa”. While waiting for the world to end, their call to excitement comes unexpectedly when one of them meets a charismatic young woman and falls hard in love. Quickly integrated into a new group of friends, they set off on a journey of betrayal, love, hate, infidelity and extreme violence more devastating and fiery than any of their apocalyptic fantasies.
