The Roads Not Taken trailer landed on our desk and for fans of Javier Bardem you are definitely going to want to catch his new film which has a great cast.
THE ROADS NOT TAKEN trailer follows 24 turbulent hours in the life of father and daughter Leo (Bardem) and Molly (Elle Fanning) as she grapples with the challenges of dealing with her father’s chaotic mental state. But as they weave their way around New York City, their ordinary but stressful day takes on a hallucinatory and epic quality, for Leo is seamlessly flowing in and out of two other parallel lives – a passionate marriage with his childhood sweetheart Dolores (Salma Hayek) in Mexico a life of solitude on a remote Greek island, where a chance encounter with two young tourists unmasks some uncomfortable truths….The film weaves a rich, cinematic tapestry as Leo’s parallel lives – visible only to him – gradually unravel in moments of tragedy, happiness, regret and humour. It is only Molly who eventually begins to understand his secret selves.
