Esteemed German filmmaker Wim Wenders is bringing his latest drama, Every Thing Will Be Fine to Toronto International Film Festival next month, and to stoke excitement ahead of its debut, the first trailer for the film has appeared online via Metropole Films.
Placing The Interview‘s James Franco in the lead role as Tomas, Wenders’ new project charts one man’s spiralling descent into a personal crisis after his life is unceremoniously upended by a car crash. Though the event itself was out of his control, it is Tomas who bears the brunt of the crash’s ramifications as his relationship and work life begin to deteriorate in the aftermath. Charlotte Gainsbourg, Peter Stormare and True Detective‘s Rachel McAdams all star in the motion picture.
Truth be told, this first trailer doesn’t leave much to the imagination, showcasing a series of scenes that may be considered spoiler sensitive. Our advice? Skip on down to the synopsis below if you’re looking to go into Every Thing Will Be Fine with a relatively blank slate.
Wim Wenders will bring together James Franco and True Detective‘s Rachel McAdams when Every Thing Will Be Fine makes its bow at TIFF 2015 in September, followed shortly thereafter by a limited theatrical release.
EVERY THING WILL BE FINE, based on an original script by the Norwegian Bjørn Olaf Johannessen, tells the story of Tomas (James Franco), a writer who loses control of his life after a car accident. Even though he is not directly at fault, his relationship with his girlfriend breaks down because of this event and his life and work suddenly set off in a completely new direction. The film follows Tomas over a period of 12 years and tells an intimate story of guilt and the search for forgiveness.
