If you’ve ever thought to yourself, “Self, what would Kate Walsh and Elizabeth McGovern look like as a lesbian couple in a super serious drama about how the death of a child affects a small town?” you both 1) have very specific hypothetical dream inquiries and 2) are in luck. The actresses play a couple in the new film Angels Crest, which recently released its first trailer. Warning: It looks sad – and cold.
However what looks less sad – and downright hot – are Private Practice’s Walsh and Downton Abbey’s McGovern sharing a bed. If anything will get me to sit through what looks to be a chilly, depressing exercise in grief, it’s those two together.
Previous reports on the film discussed Walsh playing a “gruff, no nonsense” lesbian with a partner, but never named her partner. Learning that it will be McGovern playing against her makes this project even more attractive, and powerful as both actresses have impressive bodies of work behind them.
The rest of the cast also looks good, from Oscar winner Mira Sorvino to Entourage star Jeremy Piven, former Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles‘ Thomas Dekker, The Vampire Diaries actor Joseph Morgan and former True Blood actress Lynn Collins.
The movie also has a female director (Gaby Dellal), writer (Catherine Trieschmann) and is based on the book by a female novelist (Leslie Schwartz). It will be available On Demand starting Nov. 25 and in theaters Dec. 30.
So, what do you think? Looks good? Looks sad? Do Kate and Elizabeth look like a good couple? Discuss.
