God's Pocket trailer, what looks like another great performance by Philip Seymour Hoffman

As if we needed anymore proof that we lost a gift actor, all too soon in Philip Seymour Hoffman; in comes the trailer for God's Pocket.  The movie is directed by John Slattery of "Mad Men" fame.  The film stars John Turturro, Richard Jenkins, Christina Hendricks and of course, Philip Seymour Hoffman.  Check out the very interesting trailer below, and my thoughts after.  

The story looks very interesting.  But what's attracting me most to this movie is the cast.  Hoffman, with no effort, is the stand out here.  His death will certainly give the picture added attention; but his performance will do the talking.  His character seems so interesting.  There's more to him than we know.  Jenkins and Turturro look to have very interesting, if comedic roles in the film.  And I'm blown  away by Hendricks in this trailer.  Wow!  She looks like a tormented woman who can't make any sense of what's happening around her.  She's reunited with Slattery from their work on "Mad Men" and it looks like she's going to knock it out of the park with this film.  Very cool.  I am adding this to my must-see list.
