It's been nearly a year since the drama Zaytoun first premiered at the 2012 Toronto International Film Festival, and the film is finally headed to US theaters this fall after premiering in the UK late last year. An international trailer showed off the dramatic chops of Stephen Dorff in the the story of a young Palestinian refugee and an Israeli fighter pilot in Beirut in 1982 as they form a tentative bond in their attempt to make their way across war-torn Lebanon and back home. This latest trailer tries to drum up film enthusiast interest by touting the producer of The King's Speech, but hopefully the story speaks for itself.

Here's the official US trailer for Eran Riklis' Zaytoun, direct from Strand Releasing:

Zaytoun is directed by Eran Riklis and written by first-time writer Nader Rizq The story follows an unlikely alliance between a 12-year-old Palestinian refugee and an Israeli fighter pilot shot down over Beirut in 1982. Their initial distrust develops into friendship as they make their way across war-torn Lebanon on a journey to a place they both call home. Zaytoun won the Runners Up Prize in the People's Choice Award at this year's Toronto International Film Festival, as well as playing in Official Selection at the London Film Festival and AFI Fest 2012. Strand Releasing sends the film to limited theaters September 20th this fall.
