YELLOW is a wildly inventive and visually dazzling head-trip from Nick Cassavetes, whose previous films include The Notebook, John Q, and My Sister’s Keeper.
The film, which premiering at the 2012 Toronto International Film Festival, tells the story of Mary Holmes, (Heather Wahlquist, who also co-wrote the script), a young substitute teacher who escapes from her drudging everyday life by fantasizing bizarre parallel realities. We enter her hallucinatory world, peopled with Busby Berkeley dancers, Cirque du Soleil, Circus freaks, and human farm animals where nothing is quite what it seems. The cast also includes Sienna Miller, Melanie Griffith, Gena Rowlands, Lucy Punch, Riley Keough, Max Theriot, Daveigh Chase, David Morse, Ray Liotta, Brendan Sexton, and Ethan Suplee.
