Check out the official plot synopsis of Bel Canto, the upcoming drama movie directed by Paul Weitz from a script he co-wrote with Anthony Weintraub based on the 2001 novel of the same name written by Ann Patchett:
“Roxane Coss (Julianne Moore), a famous American soprano, travels to a military dictatorship in South America to give a private concert at the birthday party of rich Japanese industrialist Katsumi Hosokawa (Ken Watanabe). The house is taken over by guerrillas, led by General Benjamin (Demian Bichir), demanding the release of their imprisoned comrades. A monthlong standoff ensues in which hostages and captors must overcome their differences and find their shared humanity in the face of impending disaster.”
I haven’t read the novel the film is based on, but since Ken Watanabe and Julianne Moore are part of the cast am kind of impatient to see the film.
The film has yet to get an official release date, most likely sometime in 2017.
