Full US Trailer for Pablo Larraín's 'Neruda' Starring Gael García Bernal
"In this fiction, we all revolve around the protagonist." The Orchard has released an official US trailer for Pablo Larraín's other film this year, titled Neruda, about a Chilean Senator in the 1940s who is chased by a police man. Larraín is a filmmaker everyone should be getting to know, especially with two great films this year - his other one is Jackie starring Natalie Portman (his first English-language feature). We ran the first trailer for Neruda back in May, just before it premiered at the Cannes Film Festival. It has since earned lots of rave reviews at numerous festivals all over the world. Luis Gnecco plays the famous poet Pablo Neruda, and Gael García Bernal plays the cop after him. This is one of the most truly poetic films I have ever seen, with so much to take in and appreciate between the dialogue and visual sensibilities. Get a glimpse below.
Here's the official US trailer (+ original poster) for Pablo Larraín's Neruda, direct from YouTube:
It's 1948 and the Cold War has reached Chile. In congress, Senator Pablo Neruda accuses the government of betrayal and is swiftly impeached by President Videla. Police Prefect Óscar Peluchonneau is assigned to arrest the poet. Neruda tries to flee the country with his wife Delia del Carril, but they are forced into hiding. In the struggle with his nemesis Peluchonneau, Neruda sees an opportunity to reinvent himself. He plays with the Prefect, leaving clues designed to make their game of cat-and-mouse more dangerous, more intimate. In this story of persecution, Neruda recognizes his own heroic possibilities: a chance to become both a symbol for liberty and a literary legend. Neruda is directed by acclaimed Chilean filmmaker Pablo Larraín, of No, The Club and Post Mortem previously. The film will be distributed in Chile by 20th Century Fox, and premiered at the Cannes Film Festival this year. It also played at Telluride, Toronto, Vancouver and New York Film Festivals. The Orchard will open Neruda in theaters starting December 16th this fall.
