Tim Blake Nelson's Latest

IFC has released the first trailer for actor-director Tim Blake Nelson‘s latest Anesthesia, a small-scale but heartfelt film which premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival earlier this year.

Nelson assembled a powerhouse cast, which besides himself includes Kristen Stewart, Glenn Close, Sam Waterston, Corey Stoll, Gretchen Mol, Michael K. Williams, and K. Todd Freeman.

Set amid a myriad of interconnected stories after a beloved Columbia University professor is violently mugged, a Crash-like drama opens in select theaters and hits VOD on January 8, 2016. Watch the trailer below.

From the looks of this trailer, seems that Kristen has worked very hard to stop biting her lip. No offense, I’m just kidding. It looks good but depressing.

Set in New York City, Tim Blake Nelson’s thought-provoking drama is a meditation of city life that examines the inextricable and unforeseen forces that bring a group of disparate individuals together in a world where many people are alone and life remains unexamined.

Walter Zarrow is a well-loved Columbia University professor of philosophy. His son has just revealed daunting news that has made him realize its time to retire and concentrate on enjoying his golden years with his loving wife. What he doesn’t know is how much his “being” may touch those around him: a troubled student; a philandering husband, and a man fighting drug addiction.
