Star Movies to premiere Babel on 18 July


Mumbai: Star Movies will be premiering Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett starrer Babel on 18 July at 9 pm.

Armed with a Winchester rifle, two Moroccan boys set out to look after their family’s herd of goats. In the silent echoes of the desert, they decide to test the rifle, but the bullet goes farther than they thought it would and in an instant, the lives of four separate groups of strangers on three different continents collide.

Caught up in the rising tide of an accident that escalates beyond anyone’s control, are an American couple (Brad Pitt, Cate Blanchett) vacationing in Morocco, a Moroccan herder buys a rifle for his sons to keep the jackals away from his herd. Meanwhile on the other side of the globe, a rebellious deaf girl in Japan deals with rejection and the death of her mother and a Mexican nanny who without permission takes two American children across the border. None of these strangers ever meets; in spite of the sudden, unlikely connection between them, they all remain isolated due to their own inability to communicate meaningfully with anyone around them.

Four interlocking stories, all connected by a single gun, all converge at the end and reveal a complex and tragic story of the lives of humanity around the world. It shows how humans truly are not very different.

From Alejandro González Iñárritu comes a film that is at once intimate and epic, shot in four countries, cast with actors and non-actors. The film concludes his trilogy that started with Amores Perros and 21 Grams. Watch the powerful film that takes cinematic experience way beyond the realm of the linear, in the Friday Night Premiere.
