Watch: First International Trailer For 'Maryland' Starring Matthias Schoenaerts And Diane Kruger

Audiences are getting Matthias Schoenaerts in all shapes and sizes this year. There’s the low rent thriller “The Loft,” the flop “A Little Chaos,” and the beautiful period drama “Far From The Madding Crowd.” These have already hit screens, but he’s got a bunch more on the way including the WWII drama “Suite Francaise,” the Venice bound “A Bigger Splash,” and awards contender “The Danish Girl.” Also coming soon is “Maryland,” and following its Cannes Film Festival debut this spring, it’s gearing up to hit cinemas and the first international trailer has dropped.

Co-starring Diane Kruger, and directed by Alice Winocour, the film details the relationship between the wife of a Lebanese businessman, and a Special Forces solider dealing with PTSD, in a film that our critic called “a small but polished find.” Here’s the official synopsis: 

Vincent, a French Special Forces soldier just back from Afghanistan, is suffering from a post-traumatic stress disorder. He is hired to ensure the security of Jessie, the wife of a rich Lebanese businessman at their luxurious villa « Maryland ».
As he starts experiencing a strange fascination for the woman he has to protect, Vincent increasingly seems to fall into paranoia. Unless he is right, and the danger is very real indeed…

“Maryland” opens in France on September 30th. Sundance Selects has the U.S. rights, but no date has been set. Watch below.
