In the film, Ryan Phillippe stars as Jonathan Preest, a masked vigilante detective living in a futuristic London where there is no separation between Church and State.In film, Ryan Phillippe joaca in rolul lui Jonathan Preest, un detectiv mascat care traieste intr-o Londra din viitor unde nu exista limite intre credinta si demnitate.

Set between contemporary London, and the futuristic religion-dominated Meanwhile City, the film traces the fates of four characters: Jonathan Preest (Ryan Phillippe), an atheist vigilante who has vowed revenge on Meanwhile City’s leader; Emilia (Eva Green), a privileged young artist whose difficult relationship with her mother fuels her cynicism and depression; Milo (Sam Riley), a sensitive young man whose heart has been recently broken; and Peter (Bernard Hill), a deeply religious man who has come to London in search of his missing son, a troubled Gulf War veteran.

Franklyn is both written and directed by English filmmaker Gerald McMorrow, who is making his directorial debut after writing and directing a sci-fi short in 2002 called Thespian X. The film is actually premiering at the London Film Festival tomorrow, but doesn’t have a US distributor yet. Hopefully Franklyn will find one soon, because it’s already due out in theaters in England on January 30th, 2009.

The trailer is very low quality and is quite hard to watch…

Povestea se desfasoara intre Londra contemporara si un oras crestin din viitor pe nume Meanwhile City. Filmul urmareste destinul a patru caractere: Jonathan Preest (Ryan Phillippe), un ateu care vrea sa se razbune pe liderul Meanwhile City; Emilia (Eva Green), un artist inzestrat care are o relatie dificila cu mama sa, relatie ce duce la depresie si cinism; Milo (Sam Riley), un tanar sensibil a carei inima a fost franta de curand; si Peter (Bernard Hill), un om foarte religios care a sosit in Londra pentru a-si cauta fiul disparut, un veteran , cu probleme, al razboiului din Golf.

Franklyn este scris si regizat de englezul Gerald McMorrow. Acesta este debutul sau regizoral, dupa ce a scris si regizat un film sci-fi, de scurta durata, in 2002, numit Thespian X. Filmu are premiera la London Film Festival, astazi, si nu se cunoaste daca exista un distribuitor si pentru Europa sau Statele Unite. Filmul va avea premiera in cinematografe in Anglia, la data de 30 ianuarie 2009.

Trailerul este de o calitate slaba, dar merita sa-i dati o sansa, pana va apare unul mai calitativ.
