Your First Look At Julianne Moore’s New Hostage Drama Is Here

Introducing 'Bel Canto'

There’s nothing we love more than a gripping new movie and Julianne Moore‘s upcoming film Bel Canto looks to be exactly that. 

The hostage drama, based on Ann Patchett’s novel of the same name, follows a Japanese mogul (Ken Watanabe) who goes to South America for a prospective business venture.

While there, he attends a party where opera singer Roxane Coss (Moore) is set to perform. But the show doesn’t go as scheduled: a group of anti-government rebels with guns storm the event, taking hostages to use in exchange for freedom of their imprisoned peers.
