Love blossoms in the midst of war in these two exclusive pics from Sergio Castellitto’s newest film Twice Born. In the film, Penélope Cruz and Emile Hirsch play Gemma and Diego, a pair of unlikely lovers whose romance breaks through the conflict building between them. Years after their love story, when Gemma takes her teenage son to Sarajevo, the city where she and Diego first fell for one another, deep familial mysteries are revealed in the backdrop of a city that, just like the film’s characters, is still scarred from the terror of the Bosnian War.
The exclusive pictures show the usually stunning Cruz looking quite frumpy under a tangle of hair, as she gets cozy with Hirsch. The other features Hirsch stepping behind the camera for some directing of his own. Twice Born comes out in theaters and On Demand on Friday, Dec. 6. Stay tuned tomorrow for our reveal of an exclusive Twice Born clip.
