Discover the trailer for “My Son”, a new film by Christian Carion, with James McAvoy and Claire Foy, remake of “My Boy”, an astonishing concept thriller, with Guillaume Canet and Mélanie Laurent. Released on November 3, 2021 in theaters.
4 years after My Boy, Christian Carion unveils the English remake of his own film, My Son. The screenwriter and director has indeed directed a new version of his film whose concept is very special: its main actor does not know the scenario of the film in which he is shooting and must improvise according to the situations he finds himself confronted with, like a role-playing character.
After Guillaume Canet, it is the Scottish actor James McAvoy who is the hero of this thriller whose pitch is as follows: Edmond Murray drives in a rented car on a road which runs along a Loch in the heart of the Highlands of Scotland.
His ex-wife, Joan Richmond, left him a tearful message: Their 8-year-old son, Ethan, is missing. He finds Joan in an “adventure” campsite where the child was to spend a week with other kids. Quickly the trail of the kidnapping emerges, plunging the child’s parents into even greater anguish … The screenplay is co-written by Christian Carion and Laure Irrmann.
Check out the trailer. My Son will be released in French theaters on November 3, 2021.
