Imagine falling in love with someone who is dead. Based on the Tom Drury novel of the same name, The Driftless Area explores such an idea — and more. A neo-noir crime drama, the film stars Anton Yelchin (Star Trek) as Pierre, a young man who returns to his hometown following the death of his parents. Soon he finds himself captivated by a mysterious woman named Stella (Zooey Deschanel, star of Fox’s The New Girl), who saves him after he falls down a well shaft.
Watch the exclusive trailer above to learn more about Stella’s dark secret, which draws Pierre further into her vengeful plan, sending him toward a dangerous clash with an erratic criminal (John Hawkes). Aubrey Plaza (Safety Not Guaranteed) and Frank Langella (Frost/Nixon) also star.
Discover how the mystery unfolds when The Driftless Area becomes available on VOD and DVD on April 26.
