A month away from "Little Ashes" theatrical release, MTV has got its hands on two exclusive clips from the indie drama. Though they are each less than a minute long, the two manage to reel in snippets at Robert Pattinson's portrayal of young Salvador Dali as well as Javier Beltran's Federico Garcia Lorca and Matthew McNulty's Luis Bunuel.
The first clip, "Salvador Dali Has a New Look", opens with a scene wherein Lorca and Bunuel discuss how to make a difference in the world. While they are arguing about it, Bunuel spots Dali and his newly cleaned-up look, stating that "The girls will go crazy." Meanwhile, the second clip, "Dali Inspires Lorca's Work", shows that the relationship between Dali and Lorca is developing.
Beside those two "Little Ashes" clips, another clip "Bicycle Ride in Cadaques" was found at the film's official site. Around one minute long, the clip exhibits the time when Dali and Lorca are spending their time together, riding bikes along the dirt road of Cadaques in Northern Spain. Additionally, four other "Little Ashes" clips have been released previously.
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 in 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" is directed by Paul Morrison. It has been premiered at the 16th annual Raindance film festival in London back in October and will get its limited U.S. release on May 8.
