Opening in theaters tomorrow, the multi-tiered science fiction epic CLOUD ATLAS is, hands down, one of the most interesting and thought provoking films of the season and one we expect will garner some attention come awards time. Based on the best-selling novel by DAVID MITCHELL and collectively directed by co-screenwriters ANDY WACHOWSKI, LANA WACHOWSKI and TOM TYKWER, the film features an all-star cast in multiple roles and connected story lines that shift both time and place and provide a real showcase for the likes of TOM HANKS, HALLE BERRY, SUSAN SARANDON, JIM BROADBENT, HUGO WEAVING, JIM STURGESS, BEN WHISHAW, KEITH DAVID and DOONA BAE.
With themes open to many interpretations (not the least of which are reincarnation and transgenerational existence), CLOUD ATLAS provides much to think about. During our recent interview, Academy Award-winner SUSAN SARANDON offered her take on reincarnation. (CLICK ON THE MEDIA BAR FOR AUDIO)
