After touring the festival circuit last year and winning the People’s Choice Award in Rome, Stephen Daldry’s “Trash” is finally hitting theaters and On Demand this October. The drama has been adapted by Richard Curtis (“Love Actually”) from the 2010 novel of the same name and stars Rooney Mara and Martin Sheen.
The official synopsis reads: “When three trash-picking boys from Rio’s slums find a wallet among the daily debris of their local landfill, little do they imagine that their lives are about to change forever. But when the local police show up offering a handsome reward for the wallet’s return, the boys, Rafael, Gardo and Rato, realize that what they’ve found must be important. With the help from two American missionaries – the disillusioned Father Julliard and his young assistant Olivia – the trio begins an extraordinary adventure as they discover that the wallet’s owner, José Angelo, was working to uncover political corruption and now they must try to hang onto the wallet while they evade the police, led by the dangerous Frederico.”
Focus World will open the drama in theaters, On Demand and Digital HD on October 9. Watch the trailer above.
