We’re on the topic of big Cannes 2014 films, as we just offered up the trailer for Leviathan. I noted in that post that Leviathan didn’t win the Palme d’Or, but here’s a new trailer for the film that did: Winter Sleep, from Turkish director Nuri Bilge Ceylon. Where Leviathan appears to be a small story that gets bigger as it goes, Winter Sleep is about a small set of characters that are gradually drawn into tighter proximity. Expect a quiet film, slowly rhythmic, that follows a one-time actor, his young wife, and his recently divorced sister, all of whom are pushed together as winter begins. Check out the new Winter Sleep US trailer below.
