Check out the movie trailer video for writer/director Mitch Glazer
‘s fantasy drama Passion Play
, starring Mickey Rourke
and Megan Fox
Nate Poole (Rourke, “The Wrestler,” “Iron Man 2”) is a washed-up jazz musician fleeing from trigger-happy gangster Happy Shannon (Murray, “Lost in Translation”). While on the run, Nate stumbles across a traveling carnival, and is instantly mesmerized by the carnival’s prized attraction, Lily “The Bird Woman” (Fox, “Transformers”). But Lily is no carny fake: her wings are real. The fugitive musician falls in love with this angelic creature, and he convinces her to leave with him, to the anger of her ruthless employer (Ifans, “Notting Hill”). The two flee across the desert, but towards… what? Their destruction? Their salvation?
Combining realism and myth, “Passion Play” is a portrait of humanity at its best and worst. Gritty and hard-boiled, it is also an adult fairytale that promises hope in the most unlikely of places.
The film also stars Bill Murray, Rhys Ifans, Kelly Lynch, Rory Cochrane, Bud Cort
, and Chris Browning
comes to theaters May 6th, 2011.
