David Mitchell’s epic novel Cloud Atlas has been called “unfilmable”—the average director would get lost in its intricate structure of stories embedded within one another and its timeline, which spans millennia (not to mention its futuristic robot-clone narrative). Perhaps that’s why this movie has three directors: The Matrix’s Andy and Lana Wachowski and Run Lola Run’s Tom Tykwer. The three filmmakers, along with stars Halle Berry, Tom Hanks, Susan Sarandon and Jim Broadbent, will be in Toronto next month to show the movie—and (hopefully) explain how they managed to make it.
