BLOOM has released the first photo from Sea of Trees, the dramatic thriller from Oscar nominee Gus Van Sant. The new photo features Matthew McConaughey front and center with Ken Watanabe standing in the background. Naomi Watts also stars in the film written by Chris Sparling and produced by Gil Netter, Ken Kao, Kevin Halloran, F. Gary Gray, Brian Dobbins, and Allen Fischer.
The film follows Arthur Brennan (McConaughey) trekking into Aokigahara, known as the Sea of Trees, a mysterious dense forest at the base of Japan’s Mount Fuji where people go to contemplate life and death. Having found the perfect place to die, Arthur encounters Takumi Nakamura (Watanabe), a Japanese man who has also lost his way. The two men begin a journey of reflection and survival, which affirms Arthur’s will to live and reconnects him to his love with his wife (Watts).
