Tatiana Maslany and Dane DeHaan in 'Two Lovers and a Bear' Trailer
"There's a blizzard coming." The first trailer has debuted thanks to TIFF for a film called Two Lovers and a Bear, a relationship drama set in the small town near the North Pole. Tatiana Maslany and Dane DeHaan star as two "star-crossed lovers" and lost souls that end up together at the top of the world. Of course, things can't be perfect and their pasts catch up to them, forcing them to make some rash decisions. There are some shots in this that seem straight out of The Thing, and an actual polar bear makes an appearance a couple of times. How the bears plays into the plot, I don't know, but it's cool to see even though it seems odd. The film didn't get great reviews out of Cannes but a few of you may be interested in it.
Here's the festival trailer (+ poster) for Kim Nguyen's Two Lovers and a Bear, direct from YouTube:
Set in a small town near the North Pole where roads lead to nowhere, the story follows Roman (DeHaan) and Lucy (Maslany), two burning souls who come together to make a leap for life and inner peace. Two Lovers and a Bear is the latest fictional work directed by Quebecois filmmaker Kim Nguyen, of the films War Witch, City of Shadows, Truffe and The Marsh previously. The screenplay is also by Kim Nguyen, featuring music by Jesse Zubot. This first premiered in the Directors Fortnight at the Cannes Film Festival earlier this year, and is playing at the Toronto Film Festival coming up. No US release date has been set yet.
