Ahead of the film's world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival tonight, Emma Watson debuted the first trailer for Colonia on her Facebook page earlier today. The film doesn't have domestic distribution lined up at this time, but that could change after its world premiere screening tonight at TIFF. A chilling historical thriller, set in Chile in 1973, Colonia stars Emma Watson and Daniel Brühl as lovers caught in the crossfire of a murderous military coup - and eventually interned in a dangerous cult's compound from which there seems to be no escape.
Lufthansa flight attendant Lena (Emma Watson) is in Santiago to visit her boyfriend, Daniel (Daniel Bruhl), a talented graphic artist creating images in support of embattled President Salvador Allende. When Allende is violently ousted, General Augusto Pinochet's forces begin rounding up dissidents. Daniel is taken to the remote stronghold of Colonia Dignidad ("Dignity Colony"), home to a secret agricultural commune and crypto-fascist sect led by sinister minister Paul Schäfer (Michael Nyqvist).Read More
