Watch: First trailer for Isabel Coixet’s Nobody Wants The Night

The first trailer has been released for Isabel Coixet’s Nobody Wants The Night, the film chosen as the opener for the prestigious Berlin Film Festival.

Based on a true story, and set in 1908 Greenland, the film focuses on courageous women and ambitious men who put anything at stake for love and glory.

Spanish director Coixet has picked an impressive cast featuring Juliette Binoche, Rinko Kikuchi, and our own Gabriel Byrne.

Nobody Wants The Night does not have distribution in Ireland yet but should after its bow at Berlin.

Josephine Peary is a mature, proud, determined and naive woman, in love with celebrated Arctic adventurer Robert Peary, a man who prefers glory and ice to the comforts of an upper-class home. For him she will face all danger, even risk her own life. Another woman, young but wise, brave and humble – Allaka – is in love with the same man, and expecting his child. The relentless icy landscape both separates and draws these two women together during the long, tense wait for the man they both love in such different ways. Nobody Wants The Night is a story replete with the passion, dignity and strength of these two women as they battle to survive in one of the most inhospitable places on earth.
