eOne Films has unveiled the trailer for the war drama "Twice Born," which is based on a best-selling book and stars Penelope Cruz and Emile Hirsch. It's directed by Sergio Catellitto and is set to hit theaters on December 6th, in limited release.
Plot: Italian professor Gemma (Cruz) heads off on a summer vacation to the battle-scarred city of Sarajevo with her discontented teenaged son Pietro. She longs to show him the country where she fell passionately in love with his father, Diego (Hirsch) – but she is about to discover a long-hidden secret. Years before, when she was still a student, Gemma traveled to a very different Sarajevo, an electric, youthful city in the midst of the 1984 Winter Olympics. It was then that she began a heated love affair with the young American photographer Diego.
For a time, she was compelled only by the desire to start a family with him; but that desire would soon be complicated by her struggles to conceive, and her hopes of becoming a mother would in turn be interrupted by the coming of the brutal Balkan war and the longest violent siege of a city in modern history. In a series of transforming events, Gemma would finally make it back to Italy – but alone with an infant son who has never known the story of who he is or how he was born.
