New Trailer For Lone Scherfig’s ‘The Kindness Of Strangers’


A brand new trailer for Lone Scherfig’s upcoming The Kindness Of Strangers, which stars the likes of Zoe Kazan, Andrea Riseborough, Tahar Rahim, Caleb Landry Jones, Jay Baruchel, Bill Nighy, and David Dencik, has dropped online through eOne.

The film premiered at the Berlin Film Festival earlier this year, where it was the opening film, to largely positive reviews, and lands in cinemas later this year.

The film focusses on Kazan’s Clara, a married mother of two from Buffalo, who wakes her two young sons early one morning. She’s seen leaving the family home and heading for a parked car outside with little-to-no belongings, and it is immediately obvious that the young woman is leaving her house, and breaking away from her sleeping husband, policeman Richard (Esben Smed), who has been abusive and physical during the recent months and years of their relationship. Clara Heads to Manhattan, having always promised to take the two boys, Anthony (Jack Fulton) and Jude (Finlay Wojtak-Hissong ), to the sprawling metropolis in the past.

There she meets paroled criminal Marc (Tahar Rahim), and his lawyer ‘friend’ John Peter (Jay Baruchel), who both attend ‘forgiveness’ classes hosted by Andrea Risborough’s Alice, a thirty-something singleton who juggles time at the church hall where the meetings take place and her full-time job of an emergency room worker. Sherfig’s film slowly brings all these characters together, the group bound by rather unfortunate circumstances in almost reverse serendipity fashion.
