Third Person tells three stories of love, passion, trust and betrayal, in a multi-strand story line reminiscent of writer/director Paul Haggis' Oscar-winning film Crash. The tales play out in New York, Paris and Rome: three couples who appear to have nothing related but share deep commonalities: lovers and estranged spouses, children lost and found. Michael (Liam Neeson) is a Pulitzer Prize-winning fiction author who has holed himself up in a hotel suite in Paris to finish his latest book. He recently left his wife, Elaine (Kim Basinger), and is having a tempestuous affair with Anna (Olivia Wilde), an ambitious young journalist who wants to write and publish fiction. At the same time, Scott (Adrien Brody), a shady American businessman, is in Italy to steal designs from fashion houses. He meets Monika (Moran Atias), a beautiful Roma woman, with whom he travels to a dangerous town in Southern Italy, where Scott starts to suspect that he is the patsy in an elaborate con game. Meanwhile Julia (Mila Kunis), an ex-soap opera actress, is caught in a custody battle for her 6-year-old son with her ex-husband Rick (James Franco), a famous New York artist. With her support cut off and her legal costs ruinous, Julia is reduced to working as a maid in the same upscale boutique hotel where she was once a frequent guest. Also starring Maria Bello and Loan Chabanol. Official Web Site
