Note: We couldn't find any English subtitled trailers, but if you can, post the link in the comments! Not a super dialogue heavy trailer though.
Easily the best thing I’ve seen at SIFF 2014 at the time of this writing, Thai export Mary Is Happy, Mary Is Happy is just an all-around goddamned great movie. Loosely adapted from 410 consecutive tweets written by a real teenage girl, Happy coalesces into an episodic structure, like Peanuts, only with sudden bursts of bizarre violence, occasional absurdist digressions, and a more sophisticated sense of melancholy. Mary’s banal observations—one minute, she tweets “104.5 Love Radio is pretty good,” the next she despairs, “The truth is maybe I’ve got nothing”—are published on the screen as Mary struggles with love, putting together a yearbook, and the wide-open expanse of future staring her down.
