Clone drama Orphan Black comes to an end next year, but it’s safe to say that won’t be the last we see of its breakout star Tatiana Maslany.
She stars in not one, but two feature films this year, with a third, Stronger, about the 2013 Boston marathon bombing, due out next year. The first, The Other Half, opened to positive reviews at this year’s South by Southwest, and the trailer for the second has just been released yesterday (August 3).
Two Lovers and a Bear sees Tatiana star alongside Dane DeHaan, an equally white-hot talent who’s had rave reviews for his roles in The Place Beyond the Pines and Kill Your Darlings, and in particular his portrayal of James Dean in Life last year.
The quirky indie film tells the story of—get this—two lovers called Lucy (Maslany) and Roman (DeHaan), who are forced to leave the small, frozen town near the North Pole they live in, and encounter—you’ve guessed it—a bear. A polar bear, to be exact.
The question is, can Tatiana pull off playing just one character? See what you think:
Two Lovers and a Bear is showing at the Toronto International Film Festival in September, and is expected to go on wider release in the U.S. this year.Read More
