Sean Penn’s ‘Last Face’ Starring Charlize Theron, Javier Bardem Lands at Saban

8 September 2016 2:00 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Saban Films has acquired North American distribution rights to the romantic drama “The Last Face,” starring Charlize Theron and Javier Bardem.

Sean Penn directed from a script by Erin Dignam (“The Yellow Handkerchief”). Adèle Exarchopoulos (“Blue Is the Warmest Color”), Jean Reno, and Jared Harris also star.

The movie made its world premiere at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, where it received primarily negative reviews. Saban announced the deal on Thursday, the opening day of the Toronto International Film Festival.

Set against the backdrop of war-torn Liberia in 2003, “The Last Face” centers on a love affair between the director of an international aid organization (played by Theron) and Bardem’s relief-aid doctor. Together, they must find a way to keep their relationship alive in the extraordinarily difficult conditions that surround them, while battling their diametrically opposed opinions on how to solve the conflict, and their mutual passion for life. »
