The Cannes Film Festival is just around the corner and, as usual, clips from some of the prospective films are starting to make their way to the internet. One such film, which is premiering at the Directors’ Fortnight, is “Magic Magic.” Directed by Sebastian Silva (“The Maid”) and starring Michael Cera, Juno Temple, and Emily Browning, the film already made its North American debut at Sundance earlier this year.
The clip’s about two minutes long and you can quickly get a sense that something’s not right with Juno Temple’s character. She plays Alicia, a young American girl who vacations in southern Chile with her cousin and three of her cousin’s friends. When her cousin leaves to take an exam, Alicia starts to unravel mentally. The other friends wind up ignoring her until it’s too late.
The film is one of two collaborations Michael Cera made with the director, Silva, in Chile this year, the other being “Crystal Fairy” which premiered at Sundance as well and will make its theatrical debut in July. We’ll see how “Magic Magic” fares at the Fortnight when it premieres later this week. Check out the clip below.
