Trailer for 'Maryland' Starring Matthias Schoenaerts & Diane Kruger
This looks powerful. The first trailer for Alice Winocour's new film from Cannes, titled Maryland, has debuted online. The film follows Belgian actor Matthias Schoenaerts (Bullhead, Rust & Bone, Far from the Madding Crowd) as an ex-soldier with PTSD hired to protect a woman, played by Diane Kruger, but soon begins to fall for her. This trailer plays without any dialogue, but does show plenty of scenes that will give you an idea of all the emotions these people are feeling. The score is what makes it all work so well, but it's just an impressively crafted trailer that will draw you in and make you interested in this film. Fire it up.
