Two adolescents from the favelas of Rio de Janeiro come across a wallet in the rubbish tip where they spend their days, unaware that the chance discovery will change their lives forever. When the local police offer them a generous reward for their find, the kids realise they have are in possession something important and turn to a friend for help, thereby initiating a series of events in their attempts to hold onto the wallet and uncover its secrets. Along the way, with the help of two North American missionaries who work in the favela, they will learn to distinguish their friends from their enemies and gradually piece together the puzzle surrounding the owner of the wallet.
Such is the premise for Trash, directed by Stephen Daldry, three-time Academy Award nominee for Billy Elliot, The Hours and The Reader.
The script, an adaptation of the homonymous Andy Mulligan novel of 2010, is the work of Richard Curtis, the screenwriter and director responsible for Love Actually and Notting Hill, among other films. The three adolescent stars of the story make their debut in front of the camera while the cast of adults includes the likes of Martin Sheen and Rooney Mara.
Trash opens in cinemas on the 28th of November.
