For those looking for the most depressing and indie version of Mary Poppins available, here's the trailer for Hateship Loveship. Kristen Wiig stars as nanny whose face is in a constant state of sheepish, strained unease. Her fixed expression is something between asking someone to prom and trying to keep down a friend's terrible cooking. She's hired on to help tend to True Grit's Hailee Steinfeld, who here continues her tradition of being left in the care of weather-beaten, unintelligible old man: she's in the custody of grandpa Nick Nolte, leaving father Guy Pearce to go off to Chicago and have a drug problem.
It's the romance between Wiig and Pearce that seems to be the centerpiece here--or more so, the issue of that romance being a heart-crushing work of teenage fiction. While Wiig thinks she's having an increasingly-personal correspondence with the estranged dad, it turns out it's just Steinfeld and her friend sending the emails to fuck with her. It's a cruel bit of nanny deception indeed, but still probably not the most shocking. Because remember that time it turned out Sally Field's elderly British nanny was Robin Williams?
