Check These Out: Two Bold New Posters for Julian Schnabel's 'Miral'
Is this the face of a terrorist?! We've been remiss in covering anything regarding a controversial screening at the U.N. (more on that here) or, well, pretty much any recent news that is related to Julian Schnabel's new film Miral, starring the lovely Freida Pinto in a powerful role. The film is gaining more buzz because of that controversy and some odd marketing, like the official poster which includes that "face of a terrorist" tagline on it. Cinema Blend has debuted two new posters containing a bible verse referring to two nations no longer being at war. It's a very unique and bold set of posters that I wanted to post about, so check them out.
You can click either poster to see them in full-size. We also featured the official trailer for Miral in February.
Miral tells the story of four women whose lives intertwine in a starkly human search for justice, hope and reconciliation amid a world overshadowed by conflict, rage and war. A chronicle of Hind Husseini's effort to build an orphanage in Jerusalem after the 1948 partition of Palestine and creation of the state of Israel.
Miral is directed by artist/filmmaker Julian Schnabel, of acclaimed films Basquiat, Before Night Falls and Oscar nominated The Diving Bell and the Butterfly previously. The screenplay was written by Rula Jebreal, who also wrote the book that it's based on. After being delayed from last year, The Weinstein Company has finally set a March 25th release date for Miral, but expect a very limited opening. Anyone interested in it?
