Our friends at IFC have passed along this tidbit of information for our valued readers to partake in. Certified Copy is the new film by Abbas Kairostami starring Juliette Binoche and William Shimell. Having seen the trailer I can already see that this film will be a visual treat. Certified Copy will hit theaters March 11th.
Synopsis: Juliette Binoche won the Best Actress prize in Cannes for her performance in this playful and provocative romantic drama from legendary auteur Abbas Kiarostami (TASTE OF CHERRY, THE WIND WILL CARRY US), his first feature made outside of Iran. Binoche plays a gallery owner living in a Tuscan village who attends a lecture by a British author (opera star William Shimell) on authenticity and fakery in art. Afterward, she invites him on a tour of the countryside, during which he is mistaken for her husband. They keep up the pretense and continue on their afternoon out, discussing love, life and art, and increasingly behaving like a long-married couple. But are they play-acting on a whim, or is there more to their seemingly new relationship than meets the eye?
