Cloud Atlas

Summary: Lana and Andy Wachowski collaborate with Run Lola Run director Tom Tykwer to co-direct and adapt David Mitchell’s British Book Award-winning novel Cloud Atlas. Examining how the actions of individual lives impact one another in the past, present and future, CLOUD ATLAS explores the connectedness of life as one soul is shaped over centuries from a killer into a hero, and how a single act of kindness ripples across centuries to inspire a revolution in the distant future. Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, Jim Broadbent, Hugo Weaving Jim Sturgess, Ben Whishaw and Doona Bae each appear in multiple roles as the audience is transported across the ages from the 19th century South Pacific to a distant post-apocalyptic future.
