Starring John Krasinski, Rosemarie DeWitt and Olivia Thirlby, Nobody Walks is the upcoming indie tale of marital dilemmas among the artistically creative, beautiful people. When Thirlby's Martine arrives in town to work on her movie, married couple Peter and Julie start to take notice of the other romantic prospects around them, leading to much pensive looks and vocalising of complex emotions.

The trailer and poster make the most of its connection to the 'so hot right now' writer Lena Dunham (I'd be tempted to call her the Mumblecore Diablo Cody, but it sounds like a thinly veiled insult), and Ry Russo Young's film was a hit at Sundance this year winning the Special Jury Prize, so this should have a lot of interest when it gets released later this year.

Just as I was starting to worry for John Krasinski's film career as a supporting player in Kate Hudson rom-coms, this looks much more promising, requiring him to act dramatically and play with the Mr. Nice Guy image he's gained in The Office. After the promising performance he put in in Sam Mendes' Away We Go, Nobody Walks looks to be putting Krasinski back on track, sort of like Mark Duplass but with a stronger jawline.
