The first trailer for the upcoming Danish film Darling has been released, and it looks pretty good!
Darling is a story of ballet; Darling is a world-famous ballet dancer who is preparing for the performance of Giselle, a well-known romantic ballet (more info here). Her husband is also her choreographer, Francis. Everything is going well until Darling collapses on the first day of rehearsal and comes to realise that her career is over. Francis, on the other hand, must find a new lead star for the performance. Darling tries to stay close to her art and her husband by training the dancing taking her place, Polly. However, as Polly develops into the lead character, Darling’s life begins to crumble.
Darling stars Danica Curcic, Gustaf Skarsgård and Ulrich Thomsen, and is directed by Birgitte Stærmose. The Danish release is set for the 19th of October and there is no word on a potential international release. Zentropa (Lars von Trier’s production company) is behind the film, so hopefully it’ll get some international love.
