“You have a conviction that at a certain age you should have it all together — but then you get older and you keep moving the goalpost,” we’re told in a new trailer for “Chantilly Bridge.” Linda Yellen’s sequel to 1993’s “Chantilly Lace” sees Lindsay Crouse, Jill Eikenberry, Patricia Richardson, Talia Shire, Ally Sheedy, Helen Slater, and JoBeth Williams sharing the screen once again.
The film sees the childhood friends reuniting after 25 years apart: a death is what brings them together. “There is a land of the living and the land of the dead, and the bridge is love – the only survival, the only meaning,” a voiceover emphasizes.
Asked what she’d like people to think about after watching the film, Yellen told us, “To quote Gertrude Stein, ‘There is no there there.’ No matter the age, we are always growing, we are always changing, and, if we’re lucky, we’re gifted with loving friends to grow with along the way.”
“Chantilly Bridge” opens in select theaters March 24 and hits VOD April 14. Naaji Sky Adzimah co-stars.
