An obsessed Penélope Cruz and her love Emile Hirsch approach a major life decision from very different foundations in the dramatic new film Twice Born, and we have an exclusive clip from the film, in theaters December 6.
Based on the bestselling novel by Margaret Mazzantini, Twice Born is set in Sarajevo and casts Cruz as an Italian professor who vacations in the battle-scarred city with her discontented teenaged son with the intention of showing him the beauty of the country where she fell passionately in love with his father (played by Hirsch). But not all is what it seems, and her haunted memories are soon rocked by the discovery of a long-hidden secret.
Directed by Sergio Castellitto, Twice Born co-stars Adnan Haskovic, Saadet Aksoy, Pietro Castellitto, Luca De Filippo, Jane Birkin, Sergio Castellitto, Mira Furlan and Jovan Diviak. Watch the trailer:
