Monos Movie

An official trailer has been released for Monos, the latest film from director Alejandro Landes which Academy Award winner Guillermo del Toro (The Shape of Water, Pan’s Labyrinth, The Devil’s Backbone) calls “Mesmerizing.”

The movie, which draws inspiration from titles like Lord of the Flies and Beau Travail, tells the story of a group of young soldiers and rebels on a remote mountain who are watching over an American hostage.

You can find a synopsis for Monos and check out the trailer along with a pair of posters below.

SYNOPSIS:

MONOS, Alejandro Landes’ awe-inspiring third feature, is a breathtaking survivalist saga set on a remote mountain in Latin America. The film tracks a young group of soldiers and rebels — bearing names like Rambo, Smurf, Bigfoot, Wolf and Boom-Boom — who keep watch over an American hostage, Doctora (Julianne Nicholson).

With a rapturous score by Mica Levi (only her third, after UNDER THE SKIN and JACKIE), director Alejandro Landes examines the chaos and absurdity of war from the unique perspective of adolescence, recalling LORD OF THE FLIES and BEAU TRAVAIL in a way that feels wholly original. Landes brings together a diverse young cast of both seasoned professionals (including Hannah Montana’s Moisés Arias) and untrained neophytes and thrusts them into an unforgiving, irrational and often surreal environment where anything can happen — even peace.

Landes also produces, came up with the story, and co-wrote the screenplay with Alexis Dos Santos (Unmade Beds, Glue).

Prior to this, Landes wrote, directed, and produced a feature titled Porfirio, and a documentary titled Cocalero.

Monos is set to be released in theaters here in the States on September 16th.
