Sony Pictures Classics released the teaser trailer for ‘Carmen‘ starring Melissa Barrera and Paul Mescal. In the film, Carmen (Barrera) travels from the deserts of Mexico to Los Angeles in search of freedom. Watch the trailer below.
From Benjamin Millepied, The film is an adaptation of the opera of the same name and follows a “young and fiercely independent woman who is forced to flee her home in the Mexican desert following the brutal murder of her mother, another strong and mysterious woman.” Carmen survives a terrifying and dangerous illegal border crossing into the US, only to be confronted by a lawless volunteer border guard who cold-bloodedly murders two other immigrants in her group.
