TRAILER: "Taking Woodstock" - Demetri Martin

Ang Lee has adapted Elliot Tiber's memoir Taking Woodstock. It's a comedy set in 1969 about the beginnings of the legendary festival that changed the lives of thousands of hippies and immortalized hundreds of musicians. Professional comedian Demetri Martin ("Important Things with Demetri Martin") plays a guy who's trying to save his parents deteriorating motel. In order to capitalize off of the hippies getting banned from holding their festival somewhere else, he rents fields near his parents' hotel, so that festivalgoers will book rooms and he'll make a pretty penny. He had no clue that so many people would come, which makes for several hilarious moments. The cast is huge, consisting of Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Emile Hirsch, Paul Dano, Liev Schreiber, Eugene Levy, and plenty more. I gotta tell you, I don't care about Woodstock, but I just might watch this.
