Colonia – Official Trailer #1 – Emma Watson

colonia Colonia is a drama based on true events about Lena (Emma Watson) and Daniel (Daniel Brühl, right with Watson), a young couple who become entangled in the Chilean military coup of 1973.

Daniel is abducted by Pinochet’s secret police and Lena tracks him to a sealed off area in the South of the country, called Colonia Dignidad. The Colonia presents itself as a charitable mission run by lay preacher Paul Schäfer (Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation and The Millennium Trilogy‘s Michael Nyqvist) but, in fact, is a place nobody ever escaped from. Lena decides to join the cult in order to find Daniel.

Colonia is directed by Florian Gallenberger, who co-wrote it with Torsten Wenzel, while it also stars Richenda Carey, Vicky Krieps and Jeanne Werner, and so far there isn’t a UK release date, but it’s out in Germany on January 21st 2016. When it does come out, it looks quite interesting and it’s always worth filling in the gaps of my history knowledge.
