Sony Pictures has your exclusive first look at two new clips from director Roger Spottiswoode’s The Children of Huang Shi, opening in theaters on Friday, May 23rd.
Based on real events, the film is a sweeping but intimate story set against war-torn China in the 1930′s. The film centers on a young English journalist (Jonathan Rhys Meyers), an American nurse (Radha Mitchell) and the leader of a Chinese partisan group (Chow Yun-Fat) who meet in desperate and unexpected circumstances. Together they rescue 60 orphaned children, leading them on an extraordinary journey across hundreds of miles of treacherous terrain, through snow-covered mountains and an unforgiving desert. Along the way they discover the true meaning of love, responsibility and courage.
