Magnolia Pictures has unveiled the first trailer for the Diane Kruger-led “In the Fade” which premiered at the Cannes Film Festival and nabbed Kruger the best actress prize for her performance.
In the film she plays Katja, a woman whose life falls apart when her husband Nuri and little son Rocco are killed in a bomb attack. Her friends and family try to give her the support she needs, and Katja somehow manages to make it through the funeral.
However the mind numbing search for the perpetrators and reasons behind the senseless killing complicate Katja’s painful mourning, opening wounds and doubts. Danilo, a lawyer and Nuri’s best friend, represents Katja in the eventual trial against the two suspects: a young couple from the neo-Nazi scene.
Denis Moschitto, Nuan Acar and Johannes Krisch co-star in the film which Fatih Akin helms from a script by Hark Bohm and Akin. The movie opens December 27th.
