We shared the news with you just the other day that director Roman Polanski was back with a new film, and just today the trailer has arrived. Such a simple idea which will no doubt turn into something truly unexpected and mesmerising, the film centres around parents of two boys involved in a fight at school. Meeting together, tensions mount, as do ego’s and reputations in this dark comedy drama. Have a look at the quite brilliant trailer for yourself after the synopsis. The film is based on a play called God of Carnage written by Yasmina Reza and stars Jodie Foster, John C Reilly, Kate Winslet and Christoph Waltz.
A showdown between two kids: about eleven, in a local playground. Swollen lips, broken teeth… Now the parents of the “victim” have invited the parents of the “bully” to their apartment to sort if out. Cordial banter gradually develops a razor-sharp edge as all four parents reveal their laughable contradictions and grotesque prejudices. None of them will escape the ensuing carnage.
