Let Me In

Here is the international trailer for the American remake of one of my newest favorite films, Let The Right One In. A synopsis of Let Me In:
Let Me In tells a terrifying tale about an alienated 12-year old boy named Owen (Kodi Smit-McPhee) who is viciously bullied by his classmates and neglected by his divorcing parents. Achingly lonely, Owen spends his days plotting revenge on his middle school tormentors and his evenings spying on the other inhabitants of his apartment complex. His only friend is his new neighbor Abby (Chloe Moretz), an eerily self-possessed young girl who lives next door with her silent father (Oscar nominee Richard Jenkins). A frail, troubled child about Owens’s age, Abby emerges from her heavily curtained apartment only at night and always barefoot, seemingly immune to the bitter winter elements. Recognizing a fellow outcast, Owen opens up to her and before long, the two have formed a unique bond.

It looks quite dark, but I'm always excited to see films that feature junior high-aged characters dealing with their everyday struggles. With two of the best child actors in the main roles--Chloe Moretz and Kodi Smit-McPhee--I'm eager to see if the remake lives up to my high expectations.
