2017 Movies: Lemon (Trailer Songs)
The trailer for the upcoming comedy drama film Lemon, due out this summer, has been released.
Directed by Janicza Bravo, who served also as a co-writer alongside Brett Gelman, the film follows Isaac Lachmann (played by Gelman), a 40-year-old man whose life unravels after his girlfriend of ten years breaks up with him.
The cast includes also Judy Greer, Michael Cera, Shiri Appleby, Gillian Jacobs, Fred Melamed, Rhea Perlman, Nia Long, Jeff Garlin, Megan Mullally, Martin Starr, and more.
The trailer features the protagonist auditioning for a job as an actor and getting it, then, after the break-up, forming a relationship with a Jamaican-American woman from work. A scene revealing an afternoon backyard gathering with her family and friends shows Isaac telling them that he has been robbed by a gang and then specifying that “it was a Latino gang, not a black gang”, because “a lot of people still think black when you say gang”. In another scene, at the same outdoor party, Isaac asks an old lady in a wheelchair “Can I get you something, bitch?”, making everyone turn their heads toward him.
Lemon debuted at this year’s Sundance Film Festival and is set to be released in theaters, iTunes, On Demand, and Amazon Video on August 18th.
The songs used in the trailer are “Dangerous” by Conroy Smith, from his 1998 album, “REGGAE HITS VOL.4”, and, playing at the end of the trailer, “You Promised Me Love” (composed by Dave Antrell) and performed by Earl Lewis & the Channels, which is included in four albums, released in 1992, 1999, 2000 and 2003, such as Classic Doo Wop [Ace] and Doo Wop [Delta].
