Johnny Depp, Robert Pattinson, and Mark Rylance star in period piece, which marks the English-language debut of Colombian filmmaker Ciro Guerra.
Here’s the synopsis: Mark stars in the “adaptation of J.M. Coetzee‘s acclaimed 1980 novel, which finds him playing the nameless magistrate of an isolated frontier settlement on the border of an unnamed empire. The Magistrate looks forward to an easy retirement, that is, until Colonel Joll (Depp) arrives to report on the security of the border and the activities of the so-called ‘barbarians,’ who are rumored to be planning an attack against the regime. As commander of the regime’s army, Joll conducts a series of ruthless interrogations, which leads the Magistrate to question his loyalty to the empire,” according to Collider.
Waiting for The Barbarians will be released on digital and on-demand on August 7 – check out the trailer!
