The trailer for Inherent Vice, Paul Thomas Anderson's upcoming adaptation of Thomas Pynchon's fantastic novel, dropped last night, and you'd be forgiven if you (like me) spent most of it wondering, who's that narrator? Well, it's Joanna Newsom, who will make her acting debut in the film as Sortilege, an "earth goddess-like" figure who narrates. You can check out her narrative stylings in the trailer below and/or wait for the whole film, which is out January 9th of next year. Check it out.
She plays an "earth goddess-like" narrator in Paul Thomas Anderson's Thomas Pynchon adaptation.
