A new clip from Colonia shows Lena (Emma Watson) and Daniel (Daniel Brühl) confronted by Chilean soldiers who catch them taking photographs of the brutality during a military coup. The film opens in the U.S. on April 15, in cinemas and Video on Demand.
Inspired by true events, COLONIA tells the story of Lena (Emma Watson) and Daniel (Daniel Brühl), a young couple, who become entangled in the Chilean military coup of 1973. Daniel is abducted by Pinochet’s secret police and Lena tracks him to a sealed off area in the South of the country, called Colonia Dignidad. The Colonia presents itself as a charitable mission run by lay preacher Paul Schäfer Michael Nyqvist) but, in fact, is a place nobody ever escaped from. Lena decides to join the cult in order to find Daniel.
