They say that one man’s trash can be another man’s treasure. Today though, it’s just the latest movie from three-time Oscar-nominated British director Stephen Daldry (Billy Elliot, The Hours, The Reader). We first covered the trailer for Trash almost exactly a year ago, but for some reason the Brazil-set drama/thriller has been sitting on the shelf ever since.
It’s unclear why the Rooney Mara and Martin Sheen led flick has been stuck in limbo so long, but a new trailer has just been released and wouldn’t you know it, it’s just in time for the end of year marketing push for Awards season. Totally coincidental timing, right? RIGHT?!
Check out the new trailer below.
When two trash-picking boys from Rio’s slums find a wallet in amongst the daily detritus of their local dump, little do they imagine that their lives are about to change forever. But when the local police show up, offering a handsome reward for the wallet’s return, the boys, Rafael (RICKSON TEVEZ) and Gardo (LUIS EDUARDO), realise that what they’ve found must be important. Teaming up with their friend Rato (GABRIEL WEINSTEIN), the trio begins an extraordinary adventure as they try to hang onto the wallet, evade the police, and uncover the secrets it contains.
Along the way, the boys will have to figure out friend from foe, as they piece together the story of the wallet’s owner José angelo (WAGNER MOURA) and realise they can’t trust the police, led by the dangerous Frederico (SELTON MELLO). But a pair of American missionaries working in their favela – the disillusioned Father Julliard (MARTIN SHEEN) and his young assistant Olivia (ROONEY MARA) – might just have the power to knock on the right doors.
Trash also stars Rickson Tevez, Luiz Eduardo and Gabriel Weinstein, and is scheduled for release (hopefully) on VOD and in limited theatres on October 9, 2015.
