Academy Award winners Halle Berry and Benicio Del Toro star a powerful new drama ‘Things We Lost in the Fire’, a moving and emotionally compelling drama about two people brought together by fate from Director Susanne Bier.
Reeling from the news of her husband’s death and struggling to cope without the love and comforts of their 11-year marriage Audrey Burke (Berry) impulsively turns to Jerry Sunborne (Del Toro), a down-and-out addict who has been her husband�s close friend since childhood.
Desperate to fill the painful void caused by her husband�s death, Audrey invites Jerry to move into the room adjacent to their garage in the hope that he can help her and her children cope with their sudden loss.
Jerry is facing a daily battle to stay off drugs, but in his unexpected role as surrogate parent and friend to Audrey’s son and daughter he finds a core of inner resilience.
As Jerry and Audrey navigate grief and denial, their fragile bonds are constantly tested. Working together, however, they discover the strength to move forward.
Things We Lost in the Fire is released to cinemas in the UK on 4 January 2008.
