Trailer Watch: Fugitive Pieces

Apple brings us this beautiful, affecting trailer for adaptation of Anne Michaels’ Fugitive Pieces. In the film, Stephen Dillane plays Jakob Beer, “a man whose life is haunted by his childhood experiences during WWII. As a child in Poland he is orphaned during wartime then saved by a compassionate Greek archaeologist. Over the course of his life, he attempts to deal with the losses he has endured. Through his writing, and… the discovery of true love, Jakob is ultimately freed from the legacy of his past.”

Well-shot and featuring what seems to be a strong cast of relative unknowns, this one could be well worth checking out. Fugitive Pieces falls into theaters on May 2nd.

    Not to belittle it or anything, but the first thing I thought when I say this picture was “Why does Tom Hanks have a lady in a sleeper hold? This movie is going to be fucking awesome”. But then I actually watched the trailer, and that’s not even remotely what it was about. It does look very good, though.

    Great, now I can’t look at that picture without seeing Tom Hanks putting some chick into a sleeper hold. :)

    Glad I’m not crazy, and someone else sees it too.
