Optimum Releasing have just sent us the brand new trailer and poster for Javier Bardem’s latest movie, Biutiful. The movie is directed by Alejandro González Iñárritu and also stars Maricel Álvarez, Hanaa Bouchaib, Guillermo Estrella, Eduard Fernández and Cheikh Ndiaye. It’s set for release January 28th.

Simon actually got to see the movie when he went to Cannes Film Festival earlier this year and you can read his review of the movie here.

Synopsis: Biutiful is a love story between a father and his children. This is the journey of Uxbal, a conflicted man who struggles to reconcile fatherhood, love, spirituality, crime, guilt and mortality amidst the dangerous underworld of modern Barcelona.  His livelihood is earned out of bounds, his sacrifices for his children know no bounds.   Like life itself, this is a circular tale that ends where it begins.  As fate encircles him and thresholds are crossed,  a dim, redemptive road  brightens,  illuminating the inheritances bestowed from father to child, and the paternal guiding hand that navigates life’s corridors, whether bright, bad – or biutiful.
