First Trailer for TWICE BORN Starring Penelope Cruz and Emile Hirsch

     September 5, 2012


The first trailer for the drama Twice Born (aka Venuto al Mondo) has been released.  Based on the novel of the same name by Margaret Mazzantini, the film stars Penelope Cruz as a single mother who returns with her teen son to present-day Sarajevo where her son’s father (Emile Hirsch) died during the Bosnian conflict of the 1990s.  That plot isn’t exactly spelled out for us in this trailer, but damn does this movie look beautiful.  Writer/director Sergio Castellitto appears to have put together one hell of an emotional film with some hauntingly gorgeous visuals.  It’s tough to judge the performances from this dialogue-less trailer, but Twice Born is certainly one to keep on your radar.

Hit the jump to watch the trailer.  The film also stars Mira Fulran and Jane BirkinTwice Born will premiere at the upcoming Toronto Film Festival, which runs from September 6 – 16th.
