Javier Beltran and Robert Pattinson share screen as unlikely lovers, Federico Garcia Lorca and Salvador Dali, in Paul Morrison-directed drama 'Little Ashes'.
Following the previous outing of two clips, "Little Ashes" has just got its first trailer. Timed around 2:19, the video footage serves as an introduction to main character Salvador Dali and his two friends, Federico Garcia Lorca and Luis Bunuel. It also highlights the untold romantic story between Dali and Lorca, and the political unrest of pre-Spanish Civil War.
Set against the backdrop of Fascist Spain in 1922, the Regent Releasing drama follows three of the era's most creative young talents, Dali, Lorca and Bunuel. Setting off on a course to change their world, the three form a bond when they meet at university. But, their friendship becomes strained as Dali and Lorca's relationship develops into an unusual love affair.
Taking its title from Salvador Dali's 1927-28 painting Cenicitas, "Little Ashes" stars Robert Pattinson as Dali, Javier Beltran as Federico Garcia Lorca and Matthew McNulty as Luis Bunuel. This drama film from director Paul Morrison has been premiered at the 16th annual Raindance film festival in London back in October. It will get its limited U.S. release sometime in 2009.
