Official US Trailer for 'Out Stealing Horses' Starring Stellan Skarsgård
"The way we carried on, something had to go wrong." Magnolia Pictures has released an official trailer for Out Stealing Horses, a Norwegian drama about a man thinking back on his life and his adolescence. The film originally premiered at the Berlin Film Festival last year, and is finally getting a release in the US this summer after opening in Norway originally more than a year ago. Stellan Skarsgård stars as a man living alone quietly in Norway, who meets a new neighbor that he recognizes as someone from his youth. This takes him back to the summer of 1948 when he was 15 years old, and the events that summer that changed his life forever. Also starring Bjørn Floberg, Tobias Santelmann, Jon Ranes, and Danica Curcic. This is an excellent trailer for this unique Norwegian film, more than just a coming-of-age story. I caught this at Berlinale and quite liked it, praising the film's "striking visuals & strong sound design." Worth a look.
Here's the official US trailer (+ posters) for Hans Petter Moland's Out Stealing Horses, from YouTube:
November 1999: 67-year-old Trond (Stellan Skarsgård), lives in self-imposed isolation and looks forward to welcoming in the new millennium alone.
