After seeing the To the Wonder trailer, did you say to yourself, "I can never get enough of watching an Affleck and a pretty woman romantically frolic in a cinematic field?" If so, Ain't Them Bodies Saints offers a new Affleck (Casey), a new woman (Rooney Mara), and a new field (wheat). The David Lowery–directed film garnered a lot of buzz coming out of Sundance and is playing at Cannes. In it, Affleck and Mara play a young outlaw couple who get separated when Affleck goes to prison. It's set in the seventies — apparently, everyone didn't have Saturday night fever. The film opens on August 16, so wear all white, because you'll only have two more weeks before the Labor Day fashion police getcha.
