Winter Sleep

After earning the prestigious Palme d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival earlier this year, Nuri Bilge Ceylan's latest film Winter Sleep will roll out to theaters late this year for an Oscar qualifying run in limited theaters, expanding into more into early 2015. And now you can get a look at the film that clocks in at over three hours long as the first US trailer has arrived showcasing the story of a small hotel owner, his wife (and her sister) who are at odds with each other as the winter weather becomes more fierce, forcing everyone into an inescapable, tense environment from which they can't leave as long as the snow keeps up. Watch below!

Here's the first trailer for Nuri Bilge Ceylan's Winter Sleep from YouTube:

Winter Sleep is directed by Turkish filmmaker Nuri Bilge Ceylan (Once Upon a Time in Anatolia) and premiered at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival, winning the coveted Palme d'Or. Aydin (Haluk Bilginer), a former actor, runs a small hotel in central Anatolia with his young wife Nihal (Melisa Sözen) with whom he has a stormy relationship and his sister Necla who is suffering from her recent divorce. In winter as the snow begins to fall, the hotel turns into a shelter but also an inescapable place that fuels their animosities. Adopt Films rolls the film out to limited theaters starting December 19th. See the film's website for more.
