Above is the trailer for Vadim Perelman's upcoming film, The Life Before Her Eyes. For many, this movie should be a welcome respite from Uma Thurman's recent work (My Super Ex-Girlfriend), and a blast back to the more challenging and tasty fare that made her famous -- films like Dangerous Liaisons and Henry & June. Based on Laura Kasischke's novel, the film follows Thurman as the survivor of a high school shooting (something only vaguely hinted at in the trailer), whose life unravels 15 years later. Evan Rachel Wood (Across the Universe) plays her as a young woman, while Eva Amurri (Saved!) plays her best friend. I must say, it's so good to see Thurman in something meatier, and if this film is half as good as the trailer, this should be a must-see pick when the feature hits theaters this April.

Meanwhile, you can head through the jump to check out an official still from the film.*
