The Silver Bullet ~ The Wall (Die Wand)

Synopsis: A woman inexplicably finds herself cut off from all human contact when an invisible, unyielding wall suddenly surrounds the countryside.

Release Date: June 7, 2013

Thoughts: This drama from Germany has a certain Stephen King feel to it, no?  Starring Martina Gedeck (who recently costarred with Helen Mirren in The Door) this looks like an interesting combination of human survival drama and sci-fi and it all feels like it will be delivered in an entertaining package.  These films that center on just one person can be difficult because it all hinges on how much the leading character draws you in.  Though Gedeck wasn’t as effective in The Door when placed next to Mirren, I saw something in there that would indicate this role and film will be a solid showcase for her talent.
