Millennium Entertainment has just premiered the first official trailer for John Turturro's Fading Gigolo, a film in which Turturro alongside Woody Allen play cash-strapped best friends who decide to go into the gigolo business together and subsequently attract the suspicion of the Hasidic Jewish community in which they live.
I caught the film in Toronto last year and enjoyed it for the light-hearted movie it was, calling it "a harmlessly enjoyable experience," and commenting on the addition of Allen to the cast writing, "[Allen's] presence here is a little odd considering Turturro's New York sensibilities have something of a 'bizarro world' feeling compared to Allen's, but it all still works... Meanwhile, Abraham Laboriel and Bill Maxwell's score adds to the feeling of the film as a pseudo Woody Allen feature as it bounces to upbeat jazzy tunes, reminding us of exactly what kind of film we're watching." You can read the full review here.
The film is set to hit theaters on April 18. Alongside Turturro and Allen, the film co-stars Liev Schreiber, Sharon Stone, Sofia Vergara and Vanessa Paradis.
