Salome Trailers. Al Pacino‘s Salomé / Wilde Salome (2013) movie trailers stars Kevin Anderson, Jessica Chastain, Ralph Guzzo, Roxanne Hart, and Al Pacino. Salome‘s plot synopsis: “Oscar Wilde’s most controversial play is the story of a princess who lived in the time of Jesus. Salomé (Jessica Chastain) is in love with prophet John the Baptist, whom her stepfather, King Herod (Al Pacino), has imprisoned in a well for heresy. But her love is spurned, and after the king drunkenly promises the princess anything she wants in exchange for an erotically charged dance, Salomé puts Herod in a terrible position by demanding the head of John the Baptist – the only man the king fears.”
Wilde Salome‘s plot synopsis: “This filmic collage captures the highs and lows of presenting a challenging work by one of the greatest writers of the 20th century, Oscar Wilde. Staging the play live in Los Angeles, director Al Pacino tackles its problems and issues and helps discover a new star, Jessica Chastain, in the title role of Salomé. Pacino also grapples with Wilde’s need to express something utterly different from anything he had written before, and with finding a way to make a movie of the entire event. An unusual, revealing and avant-garde journey into the light and heart of Oscar Wilde’s masterwork.”
