THIRD PERSON tells three stories of love, passion, trust and betrayal, in a multi-strand story line reminiscent of Paul Haggis's earlier Oscar-winning film Crash. The tales play out in New York, Paris and Rome: three couples who appear to have nothing related but share deep commonalities: lovers and estranged spouses, children lost and found.
The Rome-set segment revolves around a young couple on a road trip, to be played be Casey Affleck and Moran Atias. Both Liam Neeson and Olivia Wilde will play writers in the Paris-set section of the film. Mila Kunis is negotiating to play one half of an estranged couple in New York, with James Franco playing her partner in the segment.
Gradually, each one of these stories unveils its secrets, testifying to the whims and complexities of life. Surfaces are deceptive in the Haggis universe, but as each story is explored we discover untold pleasures and pains. Life is never easy: it can be deceptive, inhabited by anger and jealousy, but it can also be surprisingly joyous.
Movie in English with subtitles in Latvian and Russian.
