Zooey Deschanel becomes “Gigantic”


Zooey Deschanel, you just starred in a mainstream movie alongside Jim Carrey: What will you do now?

It looks as if the actress is opting out of Disneyworld. Instead, she’s back to playing a quirky and mysterious single girl alongside Paul Dano (Little Miss Sunshine, There Will Be Blood) in the new film Gigantic.

Deschanel plays Harriet Lolly, a rich young woman who meets Brian, a mattress-salesman, at his store. Harriet intrigues Brian (shocking!), who is in the process of adopting a baby from China. Having feelings for Harriet throws a wrench into his single-dad plans, and Harriet’s father, played by John Goodman, also makes things more difficult by his blatant skepticism of the relationship his daughter has entered into.

Check out the trailer:


Gigantic releases in theaters in April, and I am looking forward to seeing how the Harriet/Brian relationship plays out — which also might have to do with the note in the Wikipedia entry which reads, ” They wanted to show ‘those little things that are often found in literature but rarely in film,’ such as … Harriet’s walking around in her underpants and how it affects her and Brian’s relationship.”

I can only assume Deschanel in her underwear has a profound and positive effect on their relationship. If not, Brian is probably an unfit parent, due to extreme lack of feeling and recognition of, uh, beauty.
