Check out the first official trailer of The Song of Names, the upcoming drama movie directed by François from a script by Jeffrey Caine based on the novel of the same name by Norman Lebrecht and starring Tim Roth, Clive Owen, Jonah Hauer-King, Catherine McCormack, Gerran Howell, Saul Rubinek, and Eddie Izzard:
THE SONG OF NAMES
They began as rivals. They became brothers.
From the acclaimed novel by Norman Lebrecht.
A mysterious disappearance. An obsessive search.
From the acclaimed Director of The Red Violin.
You’ll know the truth when you hear it.
“Martin Simmonds (Tim Roth) has been haunted throughout his life by the mysterious disappearance of his ‘brother’ and extraordinary best friend, a Polish Jewish virtuoso violinist, Dovidl Rapaport, who vanished shortly before the 1951 London debut concert that would have launched his brilliant career. Thirty-five years later, Martin discovers that Dovidl (Clive Owen) may still be alive, and sets out on an obsessive intercontinental search to find him and learn why he left.”
Well am hooked! I do want to find out why a young virtuoso would bail out on a promising life.
The release date of the movie is set to December 25, 2019.
Stay tuned with us for more details.
