After making its international debut at last May's Cannes Film Festival, Italian director Paolo Sorrentino will be debuting his latest film Youth at the Toronto International Film Festival - and shortly thereafter, its full release in the U.S.

Sorrentino's film stars Michael Caine and Harvey Keitel as old friends in this late-in-life tale. Playing the role of Fred Ballinger, a former director and composer whittling time before retirement, Caine capitulates the prospect of apathy and purpose in one's later life when there's no work left to be done. He and his best friend Mick Boyle (Harvey Keitel) take a vacation to the Swiss Alps, where Ballinger contemplates the rest of his existence while Boyle continues hard at work as his screenplay. Even with the inspiration of his daughter Lena (Rachel Weisz) and the emergence of a young actor (Paul Dano) who befriends him, Ballinger struggles with his newfound existence, past relationships, and what, if anything, lies next.

Sorrentino's film boasts the wondrous cinematography, as evident by the trailer. But who doesn't appear in the trailer is the surprise inclusion of frequently controversial singer-songwriter Mark Kozelek - better known as Sun Kil Moon. This isn't Kozelek's first feature appearance, however. He's also made appearances in Almost Famous, Vanilla Sky, and Steve Martin's 2005 film Shopgirl.

Watch the beautiful trailer for Youth below and look out for it's proper U.S. release, December 4th.
