Watch: The First LONELIEST PLANET Trailer

THE_LONELIEST_PLANET_NYFF2011 I have no doubt you’ll find plenty intrigue in the trailer for Russian-American director Julia Loktev‘s second film, The Loneliest Planet. Based on a short story by Tom Bissell, this eerie travel tale is also loosely inspired by Ernest Hemingway‘s 1936 short story The Short Happy Life of Francis Macomber. Starring Gael García Bernal (The Science of Sleep) and Hani Furstenberg (Halakeh), the slow-burn thriller follows an engaged couple whose backpacking trip trek through Georgia-the-country leads them to a critical moment that will forever impact their lives.
What would you do if the one you love became a stranger in an instant?
The Loneliest Planet film, also starring Bidzina Gudjabidze is set to hit theaters on August 24th, in limited release. [youtube][/youtube] Here’s the official synopsis:
Alex (Gael Garcia Bernal) and Nica (Hani Furstenberg) are young, in love and engaged to be married. The summer before their wedding, they are backpacking in the Caucasus Mountains in Georgia. The couple hire a local guide to lead them on a camping trek, and the three set off into a stunning wilderness, a landscape that is both overwhelmingly open and frighteningly closed. Walking for hours, they trade anecdotes, play games to pass the time of moving through space. And then, a momentary misstep, a gesture that takes only two or three seconds, a gesture that’s over almost as soon as it begins. But once it is done, it can’t be undone. Once it is done, it threatens to undo everything the couple believed about each other and about themselves.
