The First Trailer For ‘QUEEN OF THE DESERT’ Starring Nicole Kidman and Robert Pattinson
Check out the first trailer that IFC Films has released for Werner Herzog’s upcoming drama film, QUEEN OF THE DESERT, starring Nicole Kidman and Robert Pattinson!
Kidman plays trailblazer Gertrude Bell– a traveler, writer, archaeologist, explorer, political officer and spy for the British Empire at the dawn of the 20th century.
Based on the true story of the extraordinary woman who found freedom in the faraway world of the Middle East, the film follows Bell (Kidman) as she chafes against the stifling rigidity of life in turn-of-the-century England, leaving it behind for a chance to travel to Tehran. So begins her lifelong adventure across the Arab world, a journey marked by danger, a passionate affair with a British officer (James Franco) and an encounter with the legendary T.E Lawrence (Pattinson). Also starring Damien Lewis.
Shot on location in Morocco and Jordan. The film had its world premiere in the Main Competition section at the 2015 Berlin International Film Festival and has been released overseas.
Queen of the Desert hits theaters and VOD on April 14.
