People exist as themselves through time? Are you serious? Cloud Atlas has got film fans in a tizzy but the whole concept is frustratingly vague. In 2012, can we really enjoy films that can't be adequately summarised in a short trailer?
Based on the celebrated best-selling novel by David Mitchell and directed by acclaimed filmmakers Lana Wachowski, Tom Tykwer, and Andy Wachowski, the powerful and inspiring epic drama Cloud Atlas explores how the actions and consequences of individual lives impact one another throughout the past, the present and the future. Action, mystery and romance weave dramatically through the story as one soul is shaped from a killer into a hero, and a single act of kindness ripples across centuries to inspire a revolution in the distant future.
