Many of the films hoping for Oscar nominations are already busy jostling for position, but now we get one that may be up for BAFTAs next year, but without a confirmed 2014 US release set, may not be up for the Oscars. The film is Suite Francaise, which has just released its first trailer.
Based on the best-selling book by Irene Nemirovsky and set during the German occupation of France in the 1940’s, Suite Française tells the story of Lucille Angellier (Michelle Williams) as she awaits news from her husband, a prisoner of war.
As Parisian refugees pour into their small town, soon followed by a regiment of German soldiers who take up residence in the villagers’ homes, Lucile’s life is turned upside down – further complicated by the arrival of refined German officer, Bruno (Matthias Schoenaerts).
The movie is due out January 23rd 2015 in the UK. [Read more…]
