Cinematical has just received this exclusive clip from the film Dark Matter, starring Liu Ye, Meryl Streep and Aidan Quinn. This one is a pretty crazy story; it was inspired by the actual events surrounding a Chinese student who travels to the United States in search of a bright future in American science. But when he has a hard time navigating academic politics, he slowly loses his way (and his mind). Dark Matter premiered at the Sundance Film Festival two years ago (where it won the Alfred P. Sloan Feature Film Prize), and I've heard nothing but good things about it. For more, you can check out a Moviefone Unscripted segment with Aidan Quinn, Liu Ye and director Chen Shi-Zheng (renowned opera and theater director making his feature film debut).

Dark Matter arrives in theaters on April 11.
