New Full US Trailer for Fatih Akin’s Cannes-Winning Revenge Drama IN THE FADE with Diane Kruger

IN THE FADE (German: Aus dem Nichts) is a German drama film co-written and directed by Fatih Akin (The Edge of Heaven), starring Diane Kruger. It was selected to compete for the Palme d’Or in the main competition section at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival, where Kruger won the Best Actress award. The film was selected as the German entry for the Best Foreign Language Film at the 90th Academy Awards.

Out of nowhere, Katja’s (Kruger) life falls apart when her husband Nuri and little son Rocco are killed in a bomb attack. Her friends and family try to give her the support she needs, and Katja somehow manages to make it through the funeral. But the mind numbing search for the perpetrators and reasons behind the senseless killing complicate Katja’s painful mourning, opening wounds and doubts. Danilo, a lawyer and Nuri’s best friend, represents Katja in the eventual trial against the two suspects: a young couple from the neo-Nazi scene. The trial pushes Katja to the edge, but there’s simply no alternative for her: she wants justice.
