Sadly, Fernando Meirelles hasn’t quite lived up to his brilliant debut City of God. Both The Constant Gardener and his most recent work, Blindess, were steps down from the kinetic energy and talent found in that Brazil-set feature. The director is back, however, with a new drama written by Oscar-winner Peter Morgan (The Queen, Frost/Nixon).
360, based on Arthur Schnitzler‘s play Reigen, follows the intertwining stories of sexual encounters with the strong cast of Rachel Weisz, Anthony Hopkins, Jude Law and Ben Foster. While word out from its Toronto premiere was mixed, the first trailer below via Apple, hints at what could be a return to form for Meirelles, with its top-notch source material and talent on display. Check it out below.
From two acclaimed artists: director Fernando Meirelles (City of God, The Constant Gardener) and writer Peter Morgan (The Queen, Frost/Nixon). With a stellar international cast that includes Rachel Weisz, Anthony Hopkins, Jude Law, Ben Foster, Jamel Debbouze and Moritz Bleibtreu, 360 is a moving and exciting dramatic thriller that dazzlingly weaves together the stories of an array of people from disparate social backgrounds through their intersecting relationships.
360 hits theaters August 3rd, 2012 after a June 29th VOD debut.
