London filmmaker Joseph Brett has created a new trailer for the iconicĀ  Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. He has transformed the classic coming-of-age tale into a highly emotional and dramatic version, complemented by the track ‘A Slight Return Home’ from the band Woodpigeon. This newly redone trailer highlights all of the emotion and depth that the movie has always had.

My aim was to make it look more like an indie coming of age film; perhaps the kind of film Sofia Coppola or Godard might make,” Brett said. “I’m always struck by how beautifully shot it is for a comedy, compared to those made now. Also how sincere the story is once you get past all the ’80s … ness.”
