Los Angeles hosted the first screening of the historical drama "Silence" directed by the famous director Martin Scorsese. According to The Wrap, after the screening, movie critics, Academy members and journalists who were invited to attend, burst into applause.
Note that "Silence" has always been a kind of "dream project" for Scorsese. According to the master's own admission, he has been striving to movie the novel by the famous Japanese writer Shusaku Endo for 28 years, but only in 2016 these plans were destined to be realized.
"Over the years, my attitude towards religion and faith has changed, and this was reflected in my movies. And this movie project allowed me not only to reflect on this topic, but literally work with it," said Scorsese, answering questions from the audience after the show ends.
The story is set in medieval Japan, and in the center of the plot are two Catholic missionaries who seek to find their mentor, and at the same time carry the "word of God" to the local population.
The movie stars Liam Neeson, Adam Driver, Kiaran Hinds, Andrew Garfield, Tadanobu Asano, Yeske Kubozuka, Yoshi Oida, Issei Ogata, Michi Ito, Shinya Tsukamoto and other actors.
