Perfect Sense trailer shows great cast
Perfect Sense stars Ewan McGregor, Eva Green, Connie Nielsen, Stephen Dillane, Ewen Bremner, Denis Lawson and Alastair Mackenzie, a good cast all round, and it appears to be a love story, but reading closer into the blurb there's something more, something deeper, a story at the heart of a pandemic.
It's a very interesting sounding film that comes from director David Mackenzie, the man who brought us Young Adam, Hallam Foe and Spread, and while the trailer might look a little confusing, the performances look fantastic.
There's a blurb for Perfect Sense which doesn't quite read perfectly well, reflecting a little how the trailer plays, but you'll understand the story:
Green plays Susan, an epidemiologist recently out of a relationship gone sour; McGregor is Michael, the charismatic chef who sweeps Susan off her feet and shows her that not all guys are a-holes. Sounds swell, right? And it would be… except for one tiny problem: At the same time Susan and Michael are falling for each other, a global pandemic is threatening to change the face of humanity forever.
And Susan, in her job as an epidemiologist, is right at the center of it all. When a truck driver in Glasgow experiences a sudden inexplicable crying fit and subsequently loses his sense of smell, Susan learns that more than 100 other people across Europe have been stricken in similar fashion. As more and more people around the globe begin to suffer these strange symptoms that first attack their emotions and then their symptoms, Susan and Michael are forced to try and weather the storm and find out how the human race might cope with such a pandemic.
It does sound interesting, and there are some clues to what might happen in the trailer, I just hope it's not one of those that has given away a little too much. Of course there's a great cast with Ewan McGregor and Eva Green leading the way and David Mackenzie behind the camera, a fair scattering of Scots in there.
