Oh man! You take Eva Green (Camelot, and soon to be in Dark Shadows) and Ewan McGregor (Star Wars, Trainspotting and one of my fave movies Miss Potter) and put them together, I am sure it's going to be greatness! Here's a bit about the movie for you all.
Perfect Sense is directed by British director David Mackenzie, who previously directed Spread, Hallam Foe, Asylum, Young Adam and The Last Great Wilderness. The screenplay was written by award winning Danish writer Kim Fupz Aakeson, of films like Okay, In Your Hands, Pure Hearts, Little Soldier and A Somewhat Gentle Man previously. This premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, and was picked up by IFC Films for distribution. However, they haven't set the US release date yet, as far as we know. Stay tuned!
Here's a synopsis for you all and then the trailer.
Green plays Susan, an epidemiologist recently out of a relationship gone sour; McGregor is Michael, the charismatic chef who sweeps Susan off her feet and shows her that not all guys are a-holes. Sounds swell, right? And it would be... except for one tiny problem: At the same time Susan and Michael are falling for each other, a global pandemic is threatening to change the face of humanity forever.
And Susan, in her job as an epidemiologist, is right at the center of it all. When a truck driver in Glasgow experiences a sudden inexplicable crying fit and subsequently loses his sense of smell, Susan learns that more than 100 other people across Europe have been stricken in similar fashion. As more and more people around the globe begin to suffer these strange symptoms that first attack their emotions and then their symptoms, Susan and Michael are forced to try and weather the storm and find out how the human race might cope with such a pandemic.
