Backstabbing for Beginners Trailer

"It sickens me to have to stand there and listen to your lies." A24 has debuted the first official trailer for a true story political drama titled Backstabbing for Beginners, from Danish director Per Fly. The film is about a young, idealistic program coordinator at the United Nations, as played by Theo James (from the Divergent series), who stumbles upon a conspiracy involving Iraq's oil reserves. Ben Kingsley stars as his boss, and the cast includes Jacqueline Bisset, Christina Dupre, Rossif Sutherland, Bel├žim Bilgin, Rachel Wilson, and Brian Markinson. This looks like a very compelling political thriller about a kid just trying to do what's right. And, as A24 says in their email, it's a very "timely" film for us to watch these days.

Here's the first official trailer for Per Fly's Backstabbing for Beginners, direct from YouTube:
