Top 100 Most Anticipated Films for 2015: #3. Joachim Trier’s Louder Than Bombs

Louder Than Bombs

Director: Joachim Trier
Writers: Joachim Trier, Eskil Vogt
Producers: Memento Films Production, Motlys, Nimbus
U.S. Distributor: Rights available.
Cast: Isabelle Huppert, Gabriel Byrne, Jesse Eisenberg

The director of two widely celebrated, excellent films (Reprise and Oslo, August 31), Trier’s exciting cast, headlined by none other than the glorious Huppert (who may finally be in an English language role worthy of her talents) also stars the formidable Gabriel Byrne and Jesse Eisenberg, and is bound to be one of the most anticipated art house films of 2015.

Gist: The film kicks off with the preparations for an exhibition celebrating the amazing work of a famous war photographer, three years after her untimely death.
