Sony Picture Classics have released a new trailer for Roman Polanski’s Carnage, an adaptation of the stage play God of Carnage by Yasmina Reza. The film follows two sets of parents (Kate Winslet, Christoph Waltz and Jodie Foster, John C. Reilly) who meet up to talk after their children have been in a fight that day at school.
A showdown between two kids: about eleven, in a local playground. Swollen lips, broken teeth…Now the parents of the “victim” have invited the parents of the “bully” to their apartment to sort if out. Cordial banter gradually develops a razor-sharp edge as all four parents reveal their laughable contradictions and grotesque prejudices. None of them will escape the ensuing carnage.
Carnage has a US release date set for December 16th, 2011. It premiered at the 68th Venice International Film Festival last month and currently has 94% on Rotten Tomatoes based on 16 reviews.
