Take a look at the trailer that’s arrived for upcoming drama Dreamland, with Aussie star Margot Robbie playing a bank robber during the Great Depression.
Robbie stars as Allison Wells, a fugitive bank robber who’s discovered by a young man (Finn Cole, Peaky Blinders) who finds himself torn between claiming the bounty for her capture or falling for her completely. Fellow Aussie actor Travis Fimmel (Vikings) plays a man on her tail.
This is the sophomore feature for director Miles Joris-Peyrafitte, who previously made 2016 coming-of-age film As You Are, working here with a screenplay by Nicolaas Zwart (has an episode of Riverdale on his credits). Robbie is also on board as producer for the film, which looks to have a Bonnie & Clyde-style narrative with some sumptuous visuals thanks to cinematographer Lyle Vincent (A Girl Walks at Home Alone at Night, Thoroughbreds, Daniel Isn’t Real).
The trailer is decent, although perhaps there’s a little bit of trepidation that comes with the film circling release since its quiet 2019 festival circuit run and finally landing what’s shaping up to be a small drop – a slight surprise considering Robbie’s status. We’ll see.
Also starring Garrett Hedlund, Kerry Condon, Darby Camp, and Lola Kirke, Dreamland will be hitting limited US cinemas on November 13th before hitting VOD on November 17th.
Official synopsis for Dreamland:
Academy Award® nominee Margot Robbie (Once Upon a Time in Hollywood) “is fantastic” (Indiewire) in this “dazzling” (Hollywood Reporter) love story set amidst America’s struggle during the Great Depression. Eugene Evans (Finn Cole, “Peaky Blinders”) dreams of escaping his small Texas town when he discovers a wounded, fugitive bank robber Allison Wells (Robbie) hiding closer than he could ever imagine. Torn between claiming the bounty for her capture and his growing attraction to the seductive criminal, nothing is as it seems, and Eugene must make a decision that will forever affect the lives of everyone he’s ever loved. Travis Fimmel (Warcraft), Kerry Condon (Avengers: Infinity War) and Lola Kirke (American Made) also star in this “beautifully shot coming-of-age story” (Indiewire).
