International theft or marriage counseling? The new international trailer for “The Love Punch” suggests that the two might not be too far apart.
The film stars Pierce Brosnan and Emma Thompson as a divorced couple who reuinite to steal a diamond in France following the loss of their pension to a corrupt businessman. Timothy Spall and Celia Imrie co-star as their friends/accomplices.
Joel Hopkins of “Last Chance Harvey” fame directed, and the trailer suggests a mix between that film’s twinkly amiability and a lighthearted farce caper. The film debuted at TIFF in the Gala section, and is distributed by Ketchup Entertainment. No U.S. release date has been announced.
