Here’s the first trailer for Venice and Toronto drama Pieces Of A Woman, which was picked up by Netflix soon after its premiere in Italy. The streamer has set an online launch of January 7, 2021, and a ‘theatrical run’ from December 30.
Vanessa Kirby scored strong notices – and Venice’s Best Actress prize – for her performance alongside Shia LaBeouf, Molly Parker, Sarah Snook, Iliza Shlesinger, Benny Safdie, Jimmy Fails and Ellen Burstyn.
The movie is the first English-language film from acclaimed Hungarian filmmaker Kornél Mundruczó, the Cannes regular whose previous credits include Un Certain Regard winner White God. Executive-produced by Martin Scorsese, the film will travel to Toronto after Venice.
The story follows Martha and Sean Carson (Kirby and LaBeouf), a Boston couple on the verge of parenthood whose lives change irrevocably during a home birth at the hands of a flustered midwife (Parker), who faces charges of criminal negligence. The film is written by Kata Wéber based on a shared personal experience with Mundruczó.
