This sweeping drama examines the connection between the lives of several characters across the centuries. Stretching across a vast expanse of time, Cloud Atlas is a hugely ambitious epic about the spiritual link between people from different eras. The film interweaves six different stories ranging from the 19th century to the distant future, each one forming part of a glorious tapestry of human existence. Beginning in 1849 with an American lawyer who is travelling across the South Pacific Ocean, the narrative then encompasses a composer in the 1930s, a journalist in the 1970s, an author in 2012, a clone bred for a life of servitude in 22nd century Korea, and a tribesman living in post-apocalyptic Hawaii. Adapted from David Mitchell's extraordinary novel by Tom Tykwer and Matrix filmmakers Lana and Andy Wachowski, this kaleidoscopic, visually dazzling feast features a superb cast including Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, Hugh Grant and Jim Broadbent.
