Watch Trailer:

THE BUZZ: One of the more intriguing premises of the season (and easily one of the best trailers as well) finds Azazel Jacobs, who directed the underrated HBO series “Doll & Em,” partnering with A24, the hottest indie studio around. And the cast? Superb.

THE BUZZ: Formerly titled About Ray, it seems the title to this transgender drama was changed perhaps to take advantage of Susan Sarandon’s “Feud” moment. The updated trailer reveals more of the dynamic between Sarandon, Naomi Watts and Elle Fanning’s characters.
