The road trip movie in which a character finds themselves across the beautiful American landscape is pretty familiar ground, but in the upcoming “Sky” starring Diane Kruger and Norman Reedus, it gets a bit of French flavor.
Directed by Fabienne Berthaud, and co-starring Gilles Lellouche, Lena Dunham, Q’orianka Kilcher, and Joshua Jackson, the film follows a French woman who breaks up with her husband and goes on a journey across the American west. Here’s the synopsis:
A French woman finds liberation in the dusty highways, wide open spaces, and smoky barrooms of the American West in this captivating road movie. Diane Kruger stars as the Parisian Romy who, while on vacation in California, breaks things off once and for all with her boorish husband (Gilles Lellouche) in a dramatic final fight. A free woman in a strange land, Romy embarks on a life-changing trip through the desert that brings in her touch with strangers who impact her life in various ways: a kindly small town police officer (Joshua Jackson), a pregnant, trailer park-dwelling mother (Lena Dunham), and a charming, ruggedly independent cowboy (Norman Reedus) with whom she finds the possibility of new love. Beautifully capturing the landscapes and soul of the Southwest, Sky is a stirring emotional odyssey about what it means to start your life over again.
“Sky” will open in the U.S. on April 15th. Watch the new international trailer below.
