Indie Trailer Sunday: Kim Basinger in Danish Baby Drama 'I Am Here'
"We need to start something new." We haven't seen Basinger that much recently. Zentropa has debuted an early trailer for Anders Morgenthaler's drama/suspense film I Am Here, starring Oscar winner Kim Basinger along with Peter Stormare (22 Jump Street, Bad Milo, Pain & Gain), Jordan Prentice (In Bruges, Mirror Mirror) and Sebastian Schipper (Run Lola Run, Three). The film is about a woman (Basinger) who really wants to have a baby, but can't do so, and sets off on a quest to do something about it only ending up in what seems to be a very messed up situation. While it seems like your standard drama, there's some very interesting quirks to it, like the tiny glowing girl that talks in her ear. Yea I know – what?!
Watch the new international trailer for Anders Morgenthaler's I Am Here, found via The Movie Box:
Anders Morgenthaler's drama world premiered at the Fantastic Fest 2014 in Austin and stars Academy Award-winning actress Kim Basinger in the leading role as a successful business executive, struggling to fulfill her greatest wish of all: to bring a child to the world. After suffering yet another miscarriage, a doctor informs Maria that she's too old to carry a child and her world comes crashing down. Devastated and unable to accept her fate, Maria sets out on a desperate and perilous quest to realize her dream of motherhood. I Am Here is both written and directed by Danish filmmaker Anders Morgenthaler, a cartoonist known for his comic strips who attended the Danish Film School in 1998 and made his feature debut with Princess in 2007. This film premiered last month at Fantastic Fest (here's a review), but doesn't have a US release date.
