The Last Face looks like particularly tedious fare, as Charlize Theron (Fast and Furious 8) plays Wren, a director of an international aid agency in Africa who meets relief aid doctor Miguel (Javier Bardem) amidst a political/social revolution, together facing tough choices surrounding humanitarianism and life through civil unrest. Throughout the entire trailer, I was struggling to stay awake… but good job I did since I was standing up at the time.
Directed by Sean Penn, from a script by Erin Dignam, the film at least has a good cast, as it also stars Jared Harris, Jean Reno and Adèle Exarchopoulos (Blue is the Warmest Colour).
The Last Face is released in the UK on May 12th.
