It’s not uncommon for actors to move their talents behind the camera. Often thespians acquire the bug for directing and chose to take to the camera with varying results. The likes of Ryan Gosling, Angelina Jolie, and Al Pacino have all tried their hand at directing.
Now Brady Corbet of Thirteen, Mysterious Skin, and Funny Games is trying his hand at directing!
Corbet’s film, loosely based on the writings of Jean-Pal Sartre and Margaret MacMillan, the film revolves around President Woodrow Wilson as he signs the Treaty of Versailles and a young choir whose father is assisting it.
Billed as a powerful, beautiful, and unique coming of age story, The Childhood of a Leader does look exquisite. Met with acclaim at film festivals and starring Liam Cunningham, Berenice Bejo, Stacy Martin, and Robert Pattinson, this film could be one of the best of the year!
