A large portion of the official line-up of films playing at this year's Toronto International Film Festival were announced today. One of those films is Colonia, a thriller from German filmmaker Florian Gallenberger. Colonia stars Emma Watson as a woman on a desperate search for her abducted boyfriend. She's drawn to the infamous Colonia Dignidad in Chile, a "sect nobody has ever escaped from", where she also encounters Daniel Brühl. The cast includes Michael Nyqvist, Vicky Krieps and Jeanne Werner. Three photos from the film have been unveiled, to give you an idea of the feel of this real world thriller premiering at TIFF this fall.
Here's the three new first look photos for Florian Gallenberger's Colonia, found via The Playlist. Interested?
From the TIFF guide - the description: "Colonia tells the story of Lena and Daniel, a young couple who become entangled in the Chilean military coup of 1973. Daniel is abducted by Pinochet’s secret police and Lena tracks him to a sealed off area in the south of the country called Colonia Dignidad. The Colonia presents itself as a charitable mission run by lay preacher Paul Schäfer but, in fact, is a place nobody ever escapes from. Lena decides to join the cult in order to find Daniel." Colonia is directed by filmmaker Florian Gallenberger, of John Rabe, Shadows of Time, and Honolulu. The script is co-written by Gallenberger and Torsten Wenzel. The film will premiere at TIFF 2015. Stay tuned for updates + release info when available.

Nice to see this young actress willing to do work in some serious films. I find myself respecting her more than I do, say, Jennifer Lawrence, who I have lost complete interest in. Having said that, I can't imagine the troops flocking to see a film with this type of heavy, dark political truths being exposed. I'm interested in seeing this and will keep any eye out for it; on how they market it; what kind of release it will get. They have their work cut out for them.
