First Look: Fernando Meirelles' New Sex Film '360' with Rachel Weisz
Well what do we have here? Another new set of first look photos from TIFF for the new "uncompromising dramatic thriller" from City of God and Constant Gardener director Fernando Meirelles called 360, inspired by Arthur Schnitzler's play La Ronde. The film is an ensemble drama that "explores how sexual relationships can transgress social boundaries." The cast includes Rachel Weisz, Jude Law, Anthony Hopkins, Ben Foster and even Jamel Debbouze, who you'll recognize from Amelie and Angel-A. While this is a sexual drama, there isn't anything risque about any of these six photos, but check them out anyway.
Inspired by Arthur Schnitzler's 1900 play La Ronde, in 360, director Fernando Meirelles (City of God, The Constant Gardener, Blindness) and writer Peter Morgan (The Queen, Frost/Nixon, Hereafter) combine a modern and dynamic roundelay of original stories into one, linking characters: from different cities and countries in a vivid, suspenseful and deeply moving tale of love in the 21st century. Starting in Vienna, the film beautifully weaves through Paris, London, Bratislava, Rio, Denver and even Phoenix into a single, mesmerizing narrative. This is premiering at the Toronto Film Festival next month - I'll be there to see this.
