Peter Dinklage takes creative inspiration from a sexual experience with Marisa Tomei amid marital problems between him and Anne Hathaway in the first trailer of She came to me.
Rebecca Miller (Maggie’s plan) wrote and directed the romantic comedy film that hits theaters September 29 from Vertical Entertainment. The feature revolves around an opera composer (Dinklage) who is married to a therapist (Hathaway) and has an affair with a tugboat captain (Tomei), which leads to a professional breakthrough for him. Brian d’Arcy James and Joanna Kulig also star.
“I am currently suffering from a temporary blockage,” says Dinklage in the images. Later in the trailer, Tomei tells him, “I was really mad at you, and now it turns out I’m your muse.”
She came to me counts Len Blavatnik, Danny Cohen and Vince Holden as executive producers. Hathaway, Miller, Damon Cardasis, Pamela Koffler and Christine Vachon are producers.
The film premiered at the Berlin International Film Festival in February. At that time, Hathaway said The Hollywood Reporter that she describes the project as an opera comedy.
“The idea is that it’s like an opera — it takes a minute to set up the scene, but once it gets going, it’s just overwhelming and beautiful and dimensional, and you really get sucked into it,” she explained out at the time.
In his review, THR lead film critic David Rooney wrote that Miller “intercuts the fanciful narrative with a vein of operatic magic, wacky comedy and a touch of the absurd, alongside more serious dramatic concerns arising from a threat to the future of a teenage couple in love.”
