This past weekend at TIFF (Toronto International Film Festival) a 60 second teaser trailer of the movie Colonia was shown. The film stars Emma Watson in her most emotional film yet. The 60 second trailer does its job of giving us the main story which is about a woman fighting to get back her man during the 1973 Chilean military coup. The film showcases many scenes of the mountain scenery in Chile as well as Watson’s character Lena meeting lay preacher Paul Schäfer. According to the plot in order for Lena to get back her captured Lover she joins the Cult that Schafer is apart of.
Playing Lena’s Lover Daniel is none other than Daniel Bruhl (The Fifth Estate, Rush, A Most Wanted Man) and playing preacher Paul Schafer is Michael Nyqvist (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo trilogy, Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol, John Wick). The movie is produced by Benjamin Herrman and directed by Florian Gallenberger. The script is co-written by Gallenberger and Torsten Wenzel. A release date has yet to be announced.
