Yes, THE MESSENGER is another Iraq war drama, but since THE HURT LOCKER finally proved the genre has some merit, maybe this movie can follow in its footsteps. The film is the directorial debut of I’M NOT THERE writer Oren Moverman and stars Woody Harrelson, Ben Foster, Jena Malone and Samantha Morton. It’s the story of a soldier who faces a moral dilemma after becoming involved with the widow of a KIA comrade. Heavy stuff.
Cinematical has the debut poster for the project which looks suitably artsy, dark and moody, the perfect cocktail for a film coming out of Sundance with good buzz. It’ll start showing up in theaters November 13th when you’ll be able to judge for yourself.
