We’ve obtained a first look at the A Tale of Love and Darkness poster for Natalie Portman’s feature directorial debut, which also gives us our first peek at Portman in the film. The actress wrote, directed, and stars in the adaptation of Amos Oz’s memoir, which recounts the journalist’s childhood in 1940s Jerusalem during the early years after the establishment of the Israeli state. Portman herself was born in Jersualem before emigrating to New York as a child, and she takes on the role of Oz’s mentally ill mother in the feature adaptation. This promo poster shows Portman covered in rain, and while it’s unlikely that this will be the theatrical one-sheet, it’s certainly an intriguing peek at Portman’s first feature film as a director.
Hit the jump to take a look at the A Tale of Love and Darkness poster. No word on when the independent feature will hit theaters. [Update: We’ve been asked by the studio to remove the unapproved artwork.]
