Jim Sturgess Sees Everyone's True Motives in 'The Other Me' Trailer
"Your eyes are getting worse!" Gravitas Ventures has unveiled a trailer for The Other Me, an indie drama from a Georgian filmmaker named Giga Agladze. This was quietly dumped this month without marketing or promotion at all, and no festival debuts. Jim Sturgess stars as an architect who is diagnosed with a rare eye disease, sending him into a surreal reality in which he sees people's "true motives". As these visions get more intolerable, he falls for a mysterious woman and confronts the truth about his own identity. The film's cast also includes Rhona Mitra, Orla Brady, Andreja Pejic, Antonia Campbell-Hughes, and Jordi Mollà. It's also executive produced by David Lynch, which is a bit strange. But this whole trailer is strange. There's one weird shot of shadowy figures, but the rest of it is just Sturgess going around yelling at nobody?
Here's the official trailer (+ poster) for Giga Agladze's The Other Me, direct from YouTube:
