In Cloud Atlas, six separate storylines play out in six separate times and places, from 1850 to the distant future: an 1849 diary of an ocean voyage across the Pacific, letters from a composer to his friend, a thriller about a murder at a nuclear power plant, a farce about a publisher in a nursing home, a rebellious clone in futuristic Korea, and the tale of a tribe living in post-apocalyptic Hawaii. Yet all stories interconnect, and a small action in one can have great consequences for another.
The movie stars Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, Jim Broadbent, Hugo Weaving, Hugh Grant, and Susan Sarandon, all playing a part in each storyline. It is directed by Tom Tykwer and the Wachowskis.
Cloud Atlas is based on the acclaimed novel by David Mitchell – the one that inexplicably didn’t win the Booker in 2004. It opens in theaters in the Netherlands on November 29th, 2012. Oscar-winning actress Susan Sarandon will make a special appearance at the movie’s official premiere on November 5th at the the Amsterdam Film Festival.
