Emily Browning croons “New York Groove” in the teaser for Golden Exits

We’re always interested in indie writer-director Alex Ross Perry here at The A.V. Club. His nearly-no-budget sophomore feature, The Color Wheel, was one our favorite comedies of the current decade, and the subsequent Listen Up Philip and Queen Of Earth were both superb. So of course we’re eagerly anticipating his new film, Golden Exits, which will have its premiere at Sundance this weekend. (Our film editor, A.A. Dowd, will be sending in daily dispatches from the festival, starting later today.)


And, lo and behold, a brief teaser for the film has appeared—a teaser that contains absolutely no information about the film, and in fact consists of nothing but an unbroken shot of star Emily Browning singing “New York Groove,” a song made semi-famous by Kiss guitarist Ace Frehley during in the band’s 1978 experiment in testing the limits of its fanbase.

Still, we’ll take what we can get. The film (which doesn’t yet have a distributor) also stars Jason Schwartzman, Chloë Sevigny, Mary-Louise Parker, Analeigh Tipton, and the Beastie Boys’ Adam ”Ad-Rock” Horovitz. Perry provided a fairly detailed rundown for the Los Angeles Times earlier this week.
