Leslie, My Name is Evil trailer

There is this trailer floating around (debuted on Apple a couple days ago) called Leslie, My Name is Evil.
From Apple:
Perry, a sheltered chemist, falls in love with Leslie, a former homecoming princess, when he is selected to be a jury member at her hippie death cult murder trial. Perry has always done what is expected of him. He was a straight-A student who got a good job at a chemical company and proposed to his Christian girlfriend, Dorothy. Leslie took a different path after she was traumatized by Kennedy’s assassination, an abortion and the divorce of her parents. She took LSD, joined a hippie death cult and helped murder a God-fearing citizen in her own home. When Perry and Leslie lock eyes in court, Perry is forced to confront the darkest parts of him and by extension, society. LESLIE, MY NAME IS EVIL is a film that explores how the choices Perry and Leslie make reflect upon the moral choices our society has made.

It's a little hard to tell what exactly the film will be like in its entirety, but it certainly has a unique feel to it and seems to capture the idea of the Manson murders and the Flower Power era cult followers pretty well. I also like the filters and coloring that has been done to the footage to give it that era feel to it...kinda "grindhouse-y". The description makes it seem that it is going to have quite a heap of social commentary thrown into the mix (something not really evident in the trailer), so we will have to see how it turns out, but it definitley has me interested!. i
