Venice 2013: First Images & Poster For Patrice Leconte’s ‘A Promise’ Starring Rebecca Hall

Venice 2013: First Images & Poster For Patrice Leconte's 'A Promise' Starring Rebecca Hall

While we all know the major players that are emerging on the fall festival circuit, it’s easy to forget there are a lot of other movies flying well below the radar at the moment, that could turn out to be a surprise. And one we have our eye on is “Man On The Train” and “My Best Friend” director Patrice Leconte‘s “A Promise” (aka “Une Promesse“).

Selected today to play Out Of Competition later this month at the Venice Film Festival, the film stars Rebecca Hall, Alan Rickman, and Richard Madden, and tells the pre-World War I-set tale of the wife of a wealthy older man who begins to fall in love with her husband’s assistant, who is a young engineer with a much more modest background. It’s based on Stefan Zweig‘s novella “Journey into the Past.” The material sounds good and we’re generally pre-disposed to watching anything featuring Hall. Not to mention that Leconte has some very good films under his belt.

Until we get a chance to see it, these pics and a poster will hold us over for now. The film has not yet landed U.S. distribution.
