Cinematical has just received this exclusive poster for Dark Matter (click on the image above for a larger version), starring Liu Ye, Meryl Streep and Aidan Quinn. The film, which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival two years ago (and came away with the prestigious Alfred P. Sloan Feature Film Prize), is inspired by the actual events surrounding a Chinese student who travels to the United States in search of bright future in American science. However, his hopes are dashed when he's unable to navigate academic politics and, eventually, he loses his way. Dark Matter marks the feature film debut of renowned opera and theater director Chen Shi-Zheng, and it was written by Billy Shebar with a story by Shebar and Chen Shi-Zheng. I've heard some really good things about this film, and so we'll definitely be checking it out when Dark Matter hits theaters on April 11.
