Writer-director Paul Haggis returns to his indie roots with his latest drama Third Person, which premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival last year and was acquired by Sony Pictures Classics in November. Today, we have the first footage in the form of an international trailer, featuring stars James Franco, Olivia Wilde, Mila Kunis, Liam Neeson, Maria Bello, Kim Basinger, Adrien Brody and Moran Atias. This story follows three separate couples in Paris, Rome and New York who are all connected in subtle ways. Take a look at this first footage, and stay tuned to find out when this indie drama will hit theaters.
Third Person wends its way through three cities and three tales. The various stories, situated in Paris, Rome, and New York, are, at first glance, all separate, but Haggis effortlessly makes connections among them as the film unwinds, concentrating on three men and their romantic entanglements. Gradually, each one of these stories unveils its secrets, testifying to the whims and complexities of life. Surfaces are deceptive in the Haggis universe, but as each story is explored we discover untold pleasures and pains. Life is never easy: it can be deceptive, inhabited by anger and jealousy, but it can also be surprisingly joyous.
