New Trailer For Paul Haggis' Third Person
Run! Liam Neeson is back in Paris

As a director, Paul Haggis is known for his multi-threaded narratives that rarely want for melodrama or “big” moments.

Neeson plays a novelist who leaves his wife (Basinger) to shack up with Wilde’s character in Paris. For the writer, it’s an autumnal romance that could have far-reaching consequences, a predicament that Franco and Kunis’s warring ex-couple are already facing in the second plot thread. That pair, an artist and actress respectively, are vying for custody of their six year-old son.

The third element sees Adrien Brody involved with a Roma woman (Moran Atias) whose daughter has fallen into the grubby maw of people traffickers. Hmm, if only there was someone else in the film who could help with that...

Third Person gets a metropolitan US release on June 20. No word on a UK launch yet.

Movement ceases at a few key moments, but outside of these swirls the emotions and reactions of three couples.
