Second New US Trailer for Julian Schnabel's 'Miral' with Freida Pinto
The Weinstein Company has finally debuted an official trailer for Julian Schnabel's new film Miral, starring Freida Pinto as an orphaned Palestinian girl growing up in the wake of the first Arab-Israeli war who finds herself drawn into the conflict. This first premiered at the Venice & Toronto Film Festivals last year, where it received fairly mixed and negative reviews, which is why there seems to be a lack of good buzz for the next Julian Schnabel film. I haven't seen this yet, but it's a good trailer and it looks like it's another powerful and emotional film. We featured a trailer last year, but this is Weinstein Co's official US trailer. Watch below!
Watch the second official US trailer for Julian Schnabel's Miral:
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?
