‘STONEHEARST ASYLUM’ OFFICIAL TRAILER DEBUTS

July 31st, 2014

Thanks to Yahoo Movies, we now have the first promotional trailer for  Stonehearst Asylum featuring Jim Sturgess, Kate Beckinsale, Michael Caine, and Ben Kingsley.

Jim Sturgess (Across the Universe) takes the lead as Edward Newgate, a med school grad who accepts an unenviable new position at the titular mental institution in mid-19th century France (you know, when treatment of the mentally ill wasn’t exactly an evolved practice). He finds romance with a patient, Eliza (played by Kate Beckinsale and likely named after Poe’s mother), but all sorts of less delightful surprises, too, in the asylum’s dark underbelly.

The film will release in theaters and VOD on October 24, 2014.

When young doctor Edward Newgate (Sturgess) arrives at Stonehearst Asylum in search of an apprenticeship, he is warmly welcomed by superintendent Dr. Lamb (Kingsley) and a mesmerizing woman named Eliza Graves (Beckinsale). Edward is intrigued by Lamb’s modern methods of treating the insane…until a series of unusual events leads him to make a horrifying discovery, exposing Lamb’s utopia and pushing Edward to the limits of his conscience.”

In honor of St. Swithin’s Day (July 15), we’ve found this video interview via Film4, of Jim Sturgess along with Anne Hathaway and director Lone Scherfig, talking about the 2011 film, One Day.

Directed by Lone Scherfig (An Education, Academy Award-nominated for Best Picture), the motion picture One Day is adapted for the screen by David Nicholls from his beloved bestselling novel One Day.
After one day together – July 15th, 1988, their college graduation – Emma Morley (Academy Award winner Anne Hathaway) and Dexter Mayhew (Jim Sturgess, Across the Universe) begin a friendship that will last a lifetime. She is a working-class girl of principle and ambition who dreams of making the world a better place. He is a wealthy charmer who dreams that the world will be his playground.

For the next two decades, key moments of their relationship are experienced over several July 15ths in their lives. Together and apart, we see Dex and Em through their friendship and fights, hopes and missed opportunities, laughter and tears. Somewhere along their journey, these two people realize that what they are searching and hoping for has been there for them all along. As the true meaning of that one day back in 1988 is revealed, they come to terms with the nature of love and life itself.
