Two things almost never work out in the movies: going on an international vacation, and going on a vacation to fix a troubled relationship. Both of those things usually end up in disaster, and that's certainly what befalls Diane Kruger in the new trailer for Sky.
Kruger plays a Parisian woman on vacation in America with her boorish husband, played by Gilles Lellouche. Want to be cooped up in the same car with someone you're having a fight with? Obviously that's a terrible idea, and when one explosive argument ends in violently, she embarks on a dangerous journey of discovery through California where she encounters a number of strangers played by Lena Dunham, Joshua Jackson, and Norman Reedus. 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.
Directed by Fabienne Berthaud, Sky hits VOD and theaters on April 15th.
