With his previous feature, Oslo, August 31st, earning a spot amongst our favorites of the decade thus far, expectations are high for Joachim Trier‘s follow-up, Louder Than Bombs, which is set to premiere at Cannes Film Festival. Led by Jesse Eisenberg, Gabriel Byrne, Isabelle Huppert, Devin Druid, Rachel Brosnahan, David Strathairn, and Amy Ryan, the first three clips have now arrived.
The first footage, amounting to over five minutes, gives us our first glimpse at the story, following a family’s reunion after the death of their matriarch, a war photographer. Trier — along with his co-writer Eskil Vogt — have carved out quietly devastating portraits of deep emotional turmoil, and this looks to be another powerful step up. Check out the clips below for one of our most-anticipated of the festival and return for our review.
An upcoming exhibition celebrating photographer Isabelle Reed three years after her untimely death, brings her eldest son Jonah back to the family house – forcing him to spend more time with his father Gene and withdrawn younger brother Conrad than he has in years. With the three of them under the same roof, Gene tries desperately to connect with his two sons, but they struggle to reconcile their feelings about the woman they remember so differently.
