Film festival darling The Loneliest Planet stars Gael Garcia Bernal and Hani Furstenberg as a young engaged couple on a twisted backpacking trip through the wilderness of Georgia (the country, not the state).
From David Thomson's review in The New Republic:
A film you will never forget because it turns on the kind of small incident that could happen to any of us and alter our life in just a few seconds... You have to see The Loneliest Planet, for it is one of those works that prepares you for life, that make you wary, alive and responsible, and which well, you'll never forget it... [Director Julia] Loktev is one of the most radical, intelligent and talented filmmakers now at work. The Loneliest Planet is an experience you deserve. So search it out.
The film is in theaters August 24.
