'PROPHET' ANIMATED TRAILER
WITH SALMA HAYEK, LIAM NEESON AND JOHN KRASINSKI
Another gorgeous trailer today comes from Cannes as the part of the film festival's official selection: KAHLIL GIBRAN'S THE PROPHET in an animated adaptation produced by Salma Hayek! Written and directed by Roger Allers (The Lion King), the film intersperses Gibran’s elegant poetry within stunning animated sequences. Set in a Mediterranean sea-side village, Kamila (Salma Hayek) cleans house for exiled artist and poet Mustafa (Liam Neeson), but the more difficult job is keeping her free-spirited young daughter, Almitra, (Quvenzhané Wallis) out of trouble. The three embark on a journey meant to end with Mustafa’s return home – but first they must evade the authorities who fear that the truth in his words will incite rebellion. Featuring music from Damien Rice, Glen Hansard, Lisa Hannigan and Yo-Yo Ma the film also has voices from John Krasinski, Alfred Molina and Frank Langella!
