IndieWire released the first exclusive movie clip for “The Brass Teapot“. The movie will have it’s premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival.

“The Brass Teapot” is a darkly quixotic film starring Juno Temple and Michael Angarano as a young, financially-strapped couple who discover a way to earn cash fast without taking on an extra part-time gig at Starbucks. The film premieres at TIFF this Saturday, and marks director Ramaa Mosley’s first foray into feature filmmaking.

Compelled on a whim to steal a brass teapot from a roadside antique shop, Alice (Temple) finds that the magical teapot is the key to escaping their unglamorous lifestyle. With every physical pain inflicted to either she or John (Angarano), the brass teapot grants them a flurry of bills. As the injuries ensue, Alice and John discover the greater the pain, the greater the reward.

In this exclusive Indiewire clip, Alice tests the brass teapot’s powers at the expense of an unwitting John. As per the clip, perhaps it will be Temple’s and Angarano’s sharp, humorous interplay (in this scene, slapstick) that will take the unsettling implications of the story down a quirkier route.

Newcomer Mosely, with several short-films and a score of music videos and TV ads under her belt, directs the film adaptation of a short story by Tim Macy. The latest film to dismantle the myth of the old American Dream, “The Brass Teapot” seems to be the kind of satire our dark economic times calls for.
