I’m not sure where I come down on this Trash trailer, in part because I can only understand about 10% of it.  Universal Pictures Brazil has released an international trailer for the film, directed by Stephen Daldry and written by British rom-com maestro Richard Curtis.  In the film, “three poverty-stricken boys who discover something unusual, mysterious, and dangerous in a city dump.”

The trailer has some slick visuals and a tone that reminds me of Slumdog Millionaire in the way that it places children in sort of a “safe” feeling criminal world.  Martin Sheen and Rooney Mara star alongside Wagner Moura (Elysium) and Selton Mello.  Rickson Tevez, Eduardo Luis, and Gabriel Weinstein play the three young boys at the center of the mystery.  Hit the jump to check out the Trash trailer.  The film is based on the novel by Andy Mulligan.  There is no word yet on a U.S. release date. 

Trailer from YouTube (via Slashfilm).  Here’s the official synopsis for the novel:

Raphael is a dumpsite boy. He spends his days wading through mountains of steaming trash, sifting it, sorting it, breathing it, sleeping on it. Then one unlucky-lucky day, the world turns upside down. A small leather bag falls into his hands. It’s a bag of clues. It’s a bag of hope. It’s a bag that will change everything. Soon Raphael and his friends are running for their lives. Hounded by the police, it takes all their quick-thinking and fast-talking to stay ahead. As the net tightens, they uncover a dead man’s mission to put right a terrible wrong. And it’s three street-boys against the world…
