Universal Pictures has unveiled this trailer for ‘Trash,’ which is directed by Stephen Daldry and written by Richard Curtis, based on the 2010 novel of same name by Andy Mulligan. Set for January 30th in the UK (expect a US date shortly), the film is set in an unnamed city where teenagers Raphael, Gordo and Rat spend their time picking through litter in the hope of finding useful waste. One day they discover a leather bag whose contents will bring them into conflict with the brutal local police force as they find themselves unlikely whistleblowers in a city rife with corruption. Rooney Mara, Martin Sheen, Wagner Moura, Selton Mello, Rickson Tevez, Eduardo Luis and Gabriel Weinstein star.
When two trash-picking boys from Rio’s slums find a wallet in amongst the daily detritus of their local dump, little do they imagine that their lives are about to change forever. But when the local police show up, offering a handsome reward for the wallet’s return, the boys, Rafael (Rickson Tevez) and Gardo (Luis Eduardo), realise that what they’ve found must be important. Teaming up with their friend Rato (Gabriel Weinstein), the trio begins an extraordinary adventure as they try to hang onto the wallet, evade the police, and uncover the secrets it contains.
