International Trailer for Natalie Portman's 'A Tale of Love & Darkness'
It may not be in English, but it still does look like a very compelling film. The first international trailer has debuted for Natalie Portman's directorial debut A Tale of Love and Darkness, also starring Portman, written by Portman, and produced by Portman. The cast also features Makram Khoury as Halawani and Shira Haas. The film follows Natalie Portman as Fania Oz, a writer, journalist, and advocate of a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. This certainly looks like it's full of beautiful imagery, telling a very emotional, powerful story. We'll update when a version with English subtitles is available. Take a look.
A Tale of Love and Darkness is a story of clashing cultures and lives, of suffering and perseverance, of love and darkness. Tragic, comic, and utterly honest, this extraordinary memoir is at once a great family saga and a magical self-portrait of a writer who witnessed the birth of a nation and lived through its turbulent history. A Tale of Love & Darkness is the feature directorial debut of actress Natalie Portman, who is also credited for the screenplay adapted from Amos Oz's memoir; Portman also produced the film. Featuring cinematography by Slawomir Idziak, and music by Nicholas Britell. This first premiered at the Cannes Film Festival. No US distributor or release is set yet, but we hope to hear about this soon. Stay tuned for updates.
