Blindness - Trailer

The trailer for the movie Blindness in which Sandra Oh plays the Minister of Health is out. Click HERE to watch it. Blindness will we released this summer.

Here is a synopsis of the movie:

Blindness is based on a novel by Jose Saramago, who also wrote The Gospel According to Jesus Christ and Baltasar and Blimunda. Like Triffids, it deals with a mysterious plague of blindness that leaves almost everyone in a city unable to see. And like Triffids, it shows society breaking down and people descending into barbaric squalor in fairly short order. Unlike Triffids, however, the blind people still keep a lot of their humanity.

Besides Moore, the film stars Mark Ruffalo as Moore's blind husband, a doctor, Danny Glover as the man with the black eyepatch, and Sandra Oh as the Minister of Health who seals off the city. (Yay, Sandra Oh!) It's directed by the Oscar-nominated Fernando Meirelles, who directed City Of God and The Constant Gardener.
