She may have announced she’s taking a year-long break from acting, but that doesn’t mean UN ambassador, feminist campaigner and all-round good egg Emma Watson is disappearing from our theater screens straight away.
Vulture has an exclusive clip of Colonia, a movie she filmed last year before going on sabbatical. Emma plays Lena, a young woman who gets caught up in a military coup in Chile with her husband Daniel, played by Daniel Brühl (Inglourious Basterds, Rush).
As you can see from the clip, the soldiers are not happy with having their photo taken:
…oh dear. At least they didn’t ask for a selfie.
Based loosely on real events, the movie tells the story of how Daniel is abducted and held captive by the Chilean secret police DINA during the 1973 military coup that put General Pinochet in power, and Lena is forced to join a cult to rescue him.
It’s directed by Florian Gallenberger, a German director who won the Oscar for Best Live Action Short Film in 2001 for his short film Quiero Ser (I Want to Be) when he was just 28.
Colonia was released in Germany in February and is due to open in theaters in the U.S. on April 15.Read More
