In the right hands, pairing superstar Liam Neeson and the beautiful Olivia Wilde could be a masterstroke. In a previously released clip, the tandem discusses their tough-to-understand relationship. Here, viewers get to see a bit more of what is going on. When Wilde’s character “accidentally” takes off with his bathrobe, she feels as if she has to give it back.
While Neeson and Wilde lead this vignette, the ensemble cast includes Mila Kunis, James Franco, Adrien Brody and Kim Basinger. Tackling different brush strokes to create a full image of love in Rome, Paris and New York, “Third Person” carefully presents distinct stories that together speak to common themes. The film was written and directed by Paul Haggis, the brains behind 2005 Best Picture winner “Crash,” which also featured broad themes interwoven through an ensemble narrative.
Sony Pictures Classics will release “Third Person” on June 20.
