Blindness First Trailer

Nobel-laureate Portuguese writer Jose Saramago has finally accepted his novel Blindness to be adapted to the cinema. The lucky Brazilian director Fernando Meirelles has been able to convince him.

So the movie Blindness is going to be release in September 2008. The film is starring Julianne Moore and Mark Ruffalo.

Here below the first official Blindness trailer:

This fall, an incident without explanation will change our vision of the world.


The Plot:
"A city is ravaged by an epidemic of instant "white blindness". Those first afflicted are quarantined by the authorities in an abandoned mental hospital where the newly created "society of the blind" quickly breaks down. Criminals and the physically powerful prey upon the weak, hording the meager food rations and committing horrific acts. There is however one eyewitness to the nightmare. A woman whose sight is unaffected by the plague follows her afflicted husband to quarantine. There, keeping her sight a secret, she guides seven strangers who have become, in essence, a family. She leads them out of quarantine and onto the ravaged streets of the city, which has seen all vestiges of civilization crumble. Their voyage is fraught with danger, yet their survival and ultimate redemption reflect the tenacity and depth of the human spirit." (Source: Festival de Cannes' Editor )

"The only thingmore terrifying than blindness is being the only one who can see...", the way Julianne Moore pronounces those words is so credible: it gives me goosebump! I'm scared already...
