In truth, Kristen Stewart plays about second or third banana in the trailer for The Yellow Handkerchief, an indie drama that seems more focused on William Hurt and his character’s troubled past with the woman-who-got-away (played by Maria Bello) than with the younger Stewart and costar Eddie Redmayne. I’m usually a sucker for meandering dramas like this one—which, as an added bonus, is set in post-Katrina Louisiana—but I walked away from this clip underwhelmed by the sampling of clunky dialogue. I suspect the movie is better than this trailer lets on. Thoughts?
