Cinematical was just handed this exclusive poster for the film Fugitive Pieces (click on the image to enlarge), based on the best-selling novel from Anne Michaels and directed by Jeremy Podeswa (Six Feet Under, Dexter). A Canadian film, Fugitive Pieces helped launch last year's Toronto International Film Festival, where a whole crop of people really dug it. Named one of Canada's Top Ten of the year, the film "tells the story of Jakob Beer (Robbie Kay), a man whose life is haunted by his childhood experiences during WWII. As a child in Poland he is orphaned during wartime then saved by a compassionate Greek archaeologist. Over the course of his life, he attempts to deal with the losses he has endured. Through his writing, and then through the discovery of true love, Jakob is ultimately freed from the legacy of his past," so says the synopsis. Looks good. Looks meaty. I like it.

Fugitive Pieces is due out in theaters on May 2, and you can check out the trailer right here.
