TOUS AND AGENCY SCPF ENLISTS GWENYTH PALTROW FOR STAR CROSSED LOVERS TALE
BY KENNETH RICHARD
Having played the lead in Sliding Doors, which told the tale of star crossed lovers, Gwenyth Paltrow joins Tous’ Tender Stories cast again as a person just missing her soul mate.
The story of Kate (Gwyneth Paltrow) and Peter (Nicholas Gleaves) is the 5th in the series by Director Victor Carrey for the accessories house. Kate and Peter have been crossing paths every day in the same coffee shop and despite both having dogs that seem to recognize these two belong together have never met. The piece has a whimsical, story like feel due in part to voiceover narration which echoes the pacing of children bedtime stories.
The move was a wise one for the Spanish brand, whose earlier pieces were in Spanish and while endearing, failed to jump to the international stage, of which the casting played a huge role here. The Impression admires the tactics of getting right the ship with the previous 4 films in the series to understand tone, narrative, and distribution before going big, and looks forward to the tender story of number six.
