“Closer to the Moon” trailer


Director: Nae Caranfil (Philanthropy, The Rest is Silence)

Starring: Vera Farmiga, Mark Strong, Harry Lloyd

Synopsis: A band of infamous thieves are arrested and sentenced to execution in post-war Romania, but first must star in a propaganda film depicting their aforementioned bank heist.

Notes: The trailer just can’t justly depict the genre of film at play here. Somewhere within this tale of rebellion and clever deceit is a fluid blend of comedy and drama. The thrill here is being pulled into the idea, tempted with richly-developed characters, and left to wonder how the plot plays through.
