A Prayer Before Dawn Trailer

"Just give me this one chance…" A24 has released a second official trailer for a film titled A Prayer Before Dawn, shot by a French filmmaker in a real Thai prison starring real inmates. This played at the Cannes Film Festival last year, but has been awaiting release from A24 ever since, finally in theaters next month. Based on a true story, the film is about a young English boxer who is thrown into prisons in Thailand, where he fights back and trains to be a competitor in a vicious Muay Thai boxing tournament. Joe Cole stars as Billy Moore, the one white man in this Thai world, who has nothing but boxing. The cast includes Vithaya Pansringarm, Panya Yimmumphai, Nicolas Shake, Pornchanok Mabklang, plus the real Billy Moore in a cameo role. This looks intense and riveting, looking forward to checking it out sometime soon.

Here's the second trailer (+ poster) for Jean-Stéphane Sauvaire's A Prayer Before Dawn, from YouTube:

My life is still way too boring to consider this story interesting. But true, he gets a time with a beautiful girl. I guess, that matters ...
