In the midst of New Moon madness, a trailer has debuted of a more critic-friendly, less-squeal-inducing venture for Kristen Stewart. In Yellow Handkerchief, Stewart takes an unplanned road trip through rural Louisiana with two strangers, William Hurt as an ex-convict and Eddie Redmayne as the awkward driver. The lonely threesome learns to trust each other and share their personal stories. The film has been received well at independent film festivals, and will surely appeal to those who avoid the Twilight phenomenon. We’re getting a feeling that Adventureland is the closest KStew will ever come to a romantic comedy…and that’s pretty refreshing.
Yellow Handkerchief hits select theaters in February 2010.
