Over his career, Michael Winterbottom has hopped frequently from genre to genre, from subject matter to subject matter, rarely covering the same territory twice. But one of the few things he has returned to is the work of Thomas Hardy.

Does Michael Winterbottom ever stop working? In the 17 years since his debut "Butterfly Kiss," he's helmed twenty feature films, averaging more than one a year, and the director has several more in the works: he's wrapped on "King of Soho," with Steve Coogan, ambitious, multi-year project "Here and There" is nearing completion, and he's got Jack Black vehicle "Bailout" and Beatles flick "The Longest Cocktail Party" on the dance card as well. And his most recent picture isn't even in theaters yet.

Until now, the teasers and previews for Michael Winterbottom's "Trishna" have largely focused on the lush Indian setting and the handsome faces of its two leads, but with the film now a few months away from hitting theaters, a brand new trailer has arrived showing off the tougher dramatic undercurrent running through it.
