Waiting for the Barbarians Trailer

Oscar winner Mark Rylance (Bridge of Spies) stars as nameless magistrate of a frontier settlement at the outer reaches of a vast, unnamed empire. But as the magistrate prepares for an easy retirement, Colonel Joll — played by Johnny Depp with a pair of sinister-looking round sunglasses — arrives at the settelement with orders to secure the border against so-called “barbarians” on the other side of the wall. Joll soon asserts a violent authority, conducting a series of tortuous interrogations that leads the magistrate to question his loyalty to the empire, especially once a beautiful girl (Gana Bayarsaikhan) becomes one of the victims. Robert Pattinson also stars as an upstart officer who eagerly bends to Joll’s new regime. The rest of the cast includes Greta ScacchiDavid DencikSam ReidHarry MellingBill Milner, and Gana Bayarsaikhan as a character known simply as “The Girl.”
