First Trailer for Gia Coppola’s MAINSTREAM, Starring Andrew Garfield and Maya Hawke

Mainstream Maya Hawke
First look at the social media satire.

Ask a kid what they want to be when they grow up and chances are they'll simply reply "Famous." The internet has sold the idea that fame and celebrity are just a few well lit Instagram snaps or a couple of attention-grabbing YouTube videos away.

In Mainstream, Gia Coppola's first film since her 2013 debut Palo Alto, Maya Hawke plays one such young person desperate for instant stardom. Hooking up with a charismatic YouTube celeb (Andrew Garfield), she achieves her goal, but seemingly at a cost.

It might seem a little odd that the daughters of Francis Ford Coppola and Ethan Hawke have made a movie critiquing young people's desire for instant fame, but let's give them the benefit of the doubt for now.

Mainstream is in US cinemas and on VOD from May 7th. A UK/ROI release has yet to be announced.

Check out the trailer below.




The official synopsis reads:

MAINSTREAM follows a young woman (Maya Hawke) who thinks she’s found a path to internet stardom when she starts making YouTube videos with a charismatic stranger (Andrew Garfield) – until the dark side of viral celebrity threatens to ruin them both.
