Watch: Tim Roth in New US Trailer for Michel Franco's Drama 'Chronic'
"One, two three…" Monument Releasing has debuted the official US trailer for a film called Chronic, a drama starring Tim Roth which first premiered at the Cannes Film Festival in 2015. Roth plays a home care nurse who works with terminally ill patients at their home, isolating himself from the burdens of his past. The cast includes Elizabeth Tulloch, Michael Cristofer, David Dastmalchian, Tate Ellington, Sarah Sutherland and Claire van der Boom. This looks like it's a very tough film to watch with some complex emotional aspects, but it has played at numerous film festivals and won the Best Screenplay award at Cannes, so there's definitely something to it. As usual, Tim Roth looks outstanding in his role. See below.
Here's the official US trailer (+ poster) for Michel Franco's Chronic, direct from YouTube:
The review in Time Out says Roth gives a "delicate performance that exudes a tender kind of chill."
Academy Award-nominated actor Tim Roth stars as a dedicated home care nurse, haunted by the burden of his past, who isolates himself within the intensely personal relationships he forms with his terminally ill patients. Chronic is both written and directed by Mexican filmmaker Michel Franco, of the films After Lucia and Daniel and Ana previously. The film first premiered in-competition at the Cannes Film Festival in 2015, where it won the Best Screenplay award. It also played at the Busan, Vancouver, London and Chicago Film Festivals. Monument Releasing will open Chronic in select theaters on September 23rd. Interested?
