Cloud Atlas is a movie starring Tom Hanks and Halle Berry, and it’s based on a novel by the same name. The movie comes out this October, which gives me just about enough time to go through the book.
The story revolves around what I would call multiple reincarnations, and on the consequences your actions have on all your lives in all their reincarnations: past, present, and future. From the trailer, it looks like Hanks and Berry are two people whose souls are connected throughout the ages and centuries. They keep on getting a strong sense of Di Ja Vu, which is weird, because the two of them always look so different. All their actions transcend into their other reincarnated characters too, which makes you really think about what you do in this life, and how it affects your next one.
The movie comes out Oct. 26th, and it looks like it could be one of those moving mind-challenging philosophical movies that shouldn’t be missed.
The trailer above is a short 2 minute version. There’s a longer 5 minute one; and it’s scarier, more thrilling and moving. It basically offers more into the story line that the short trailer. I’ll post it here if you want to watch it too.
