“THE MAN ON THE TRAIN,” STARRING DONALD SUTHERLAND AND MUSICIAN LARRY MULLEN, JR., DEBUTS APRIL 17 ON DIGITAL & DVD
“Donald Sutherland offers one of his finest performances.”—Variety
March 8, 2012 – New York, NY – A mysterious criminal rolls into a small town planning to knock off the local bank, assuming it will go off without a hitch. But when he encounters a retired poetry professor, his plans take an unlikely turn. With no place to stay, the professor generously welcomes him into his home. As the two men talk, a bond forms between these two polar opposites, and surprising moments of humor and compassion emerge. As they begin to understand each other more, they each examine the choices they’ve made in their lives – secretly longing to live the type of lifestyle the other man has lived, based on the desire to escape their own.
An English language adaption of Patrice Leconte’s acclaimed French crime drama “L’Homme du Train,” THE MAN ON THE TRAIN stars Donald Sutherland as The Professor and Larry Mullen, Jr. in his acting debut as The Thief. The original version, which won awards and critical praise when it premiered in 2002, starred Jean Rochefort and Johnny Hallyday (a renowned musician widely known as the “French Elvis Presley.”)
THE MAN ON THE TRAIN also stars Kate O’Toole, Tony Nardi, Carlo Rota, and Graham Greene. Adapted by Mary McGuckian from a screenplay by Patrice Leconte and Claude Klot; Stefan von Bjorn, cinematography; Mary McGuckian, Larry Mullen, Jr. and Martin Katz, producers. The DVD includes deleted scenes.
