Let Them Chirp Awhile

Here’s the Quicktime trailer.

The title basically means “It’s okay to have a little bit of unproductive fun in your youth, even though you will eventually give in to the inevitable sorrow and entropy that is endemic to all life, and die.”

Trailers for this sort of movie aren’t about describing the plot, or even particular characters. The only goal here is to express just the right balance of sincerity and cynicism, so that the target demographic will feel touched and understood.

Some obvious predecessors:

Kicking and Screaming (the Noah Baumbach film, not to be confused with that soccer movie) is about a group of college seniors who have insulted themselves from adult life in a bubble of intellectual self-referentialism.

These attractive wet people in Garden State are contemplating death and stuff like that.
