“Can a single second change your life?” asks Lili Reinhart in a brand new trailer for Wanuri Kahiu’s “Look Each Methods.” The “Riverdale” and “Hustlers” actress leads the Netflix pic with a premise paying homage to 1998 Gwyneth Paltrow-starrer “Sliding Doorways”: one fateful second causes a girl’s life to diverge into two totally different paths. On the night time of her school commencement, one model of Natalie will get pregnant after hooking up with a good friend. She stays in her hometown and navigates motherhood as a younger grownup. The opposite model of Natalie doesn’t get pregnant, and strikes to LA to pursue her profession.
Model 1.0 is overwhelmed by the calls for of motherhood. “I don’t draw. I don’t see my buddies,” she worries. By her personal account, she “can not think about” what her “life would have appeared like in LA.” Her relationship together with her good friend, the daddy of her little one, develops into love.
Model 2.0 will get a job working for her idol and falls for a brand new man.
“Everybody has that second of their life once they need to determine what’s most vital to them,” Natalie says. “It’s not only one second that defines your life — it’s all of the moments.”
Penned by April Prosser, “Look Each Methods” launches on Netflix August 17. It marks Kahiu’s follow-up to “Rafiki,” which made its world premiere on the 2018 version of Cannes Movie Competition.
