Threat advisory: Under evaluation

Movie propaganda

Innocence never lasts forever.

The wonders of modern technology, like computers, video games, cell phones, pagers and the internet, were designed to make our lives more enjoyable and facilitate communications. Yet for many, the complexity of the digital world is overwhelming, leading to a feeling of unreality... of being disconnected.

The desire to find something real - to connect with something or someone - is what drives Richard (Leonardo Dicaprio), a young American backpacker who arrives in Thailand with adventure on his mind. Travel, he asserts, is the search for experience, the quest for something different.

Also starring Tilda Swinton as Sal, Virginie Ledoyen as Françoise, Guillaume Canet as Étienne, Paterson Joseph as Keaty, Robert Carlyle as Daffy, Peter Youngblood Hills as Zeph, Jerry Swindall as Sammy, Lars Arentz-Hansen as Bugs, Staffan Kihlbom as Christo, Magnus Lindgren as Sten and Victoria Smurfit as the weather girl.
