Robert Pattinson has indeed gone all and out for his performance in "Little Ashes" as can be seen in the indie drama's new clip. The snippet which runs for more than one minute displays the "Twilight" hunk as Spanish artist Salvador Dali and Javier Beltran as Dali's lover, writer Federico Garcia Lorca.
Opened with a shot of a full moon unveiling itself, the clip moves on showing that both Dali and Lorca are taking a dip in what seems to be a sea. Filled with sexual tension, the two 'dance' in the water, before they take their passionate love affair to the next level. Swimming closer and closer to each other, they finally lock their lips against one another.
Set against the backdrop of Fascist Spain in 1922, 18-year-old Salvador Dali arrives at university in Madrid. Determined to become a great artist, he soon gets the attention from Residencia de Estudiantes' social elite, poet Federico Garcia Lorca and aspiring filmmaker Luis Bunuel. But, their friendship becomes strained as Dali and Lorca get closer to each other. When the two spend the summer at the sea-side village of Cadaques, their friendship becomes something more.
"Little Ashes" takes its title from Salvador Dali's 1927-28 painting Cenicitas. Starring Robert Pattinson, Javier Beltran and Matthew McNulty, the drama film from director Paul Morrison has been premiered at the 16th annual Raindance film festival in London back in October 2008. It will get its limited U.S. release on May 8, 2009.
