(Relaxnews) – Daniel Brühl, Kate Beckinsale and supermodel Cara Delevingne star in this forthcoming crime drama from British director Michael Winterbottom.

Variety gained exclusive access to this 30-second video, made for industry professionals at the European Film Market. The video focuses on a film director and a journalist, both of whom call into question the guilty sentence given to the American student convicted in the murder of her roommate in Italy.

Michael Winterbottom’s directing approach appears to be as complex as the muddled criminal case that inspired the film. “The Face of an Angel” will revolve in particular around Thomas (Daniel Brühl), a divorced filmmaker in creative and personal freefall who has agreed to direct a feature on the case.

While conducting research for the film alongside a journalist (Kate Beckinsale) who authored a book on the case, the director begins an affair with a British student played by Cara Delevingne, not seen in the trailer.

The original criminal case, which began in 2007, continues to make headlines today. On January 30 of this year, Amanda Knox was sentenced by the Italian court to 28 years in prison for her involvement in the murder of her British roommate Meredith Kercher.
