First Trailer for Drama 'The Roads Not Taken' Starring Javier Bardem
"You keep reminding me of someone that I once knew…" Bleecker Street has released an official trailer for an indie drama titled The Roads Not Taken, which is premiering at the Berlin Film Festival playing in the competition selection later this month. This is the latest film from English filmmaker Sally Potter, who brought her last flick The Party to Berlinale as well. Potter's new film follows a day in the life of Leo, played by Javier Bardem, and his daughter, Molly, played by Elle Fanning, as he floats through alternate lives he could have lived. This drifting leads Molly to wrestle with her own path as she considers her future. This also stars Salma Hayek, Branka Katic, Dimitri Andreas, Milena Tscharntke, and Laura Linney. It seems like a compelling concept for a film, playing with our longing for the life we didn't live. Could be good.
Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Sally Potter's The Roads Not Taken, direct from YouTube:
