June 2, 2014 – D Films is pleased to announce that Paul Haggis’ Third Person will open theatrically in Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver on July 11, 2014 with further expansion across Canada on July 25, 2014.

Third Person tells three stories of love, passion, trust and betrayal, in a multi-strand story line reminiscent of Paul Haggis’s earlier Academy Award® winning film, Crash. The tales play out in New York, Paris and Rome: three couples who appear to have nothing related but share deep commonalities: lovers and estranged spouses, children lost and found. The stellar ensemble cast includes Academy Award® winners Kim Basinger and Adrien Brody, Academy Award® nominees Liam Neeson and James Franco along with Mila Kunis, Olivia Wilde, Moran Atias and Maria Bello.

As Writer/Director Haggis puts it: “In any relationship there is always a third person; perhaps not romantically, perhaps not even consciously, but present in some form.” At its heart, Third Person is much more than a collection of love stories; it is a mystery, a puzzle in which truth is revealed in glimpses, and clues are caught by the corner of the eye-and nothing is truly what it seems.

Michael (Liam Neeson) is a Pulitzer Prize winning fiction author who has holed himself up in a hotel suite in Paris to finish his latest book. He recently left his wife, Elaine (Kim Basinger), and is having a tempestuous affair with Anna (Olivia Wilde), an ambitious young journalist who wants to write and publish fiction.

At the same time, Scott (Adrien Brody), a shady American businessman, is in Italy to steal designs from fashion houses. Hating everything Italian, Scott wanders into the “Café Americano” in search of something familiar to eat. There, he meets Monika (Moran Atias), a beautiful Roma woman, who is about to be reunited with her young daughter. When the money she has saved to pay her daughter’s smuggler is stolen, Scott feels compelled to help. They take off together for a dangerous town in Southern Italy, where Scott starts to suspect that he is the patsy in an elaborate con game.

Julia (Mila Kunis), an ex-soap opera actress, is caught in a custody battle for her 6 year-old son with her ex-husband Rick (James Franco), a famous New York artist. With her support cut off and her legal costs ruinous, Julia is reduced to working as a maid in the same upscale boutique hotel where she was once a frequent guest

Third Person made its world premiere at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival and also recently screened at the 2014 Tribeca Film Festival.

The film is being release in Canada by D Films and in the US on June 20, 2014 by Sony Pictures Classics.
