(Relaxnews) – Mars Distribution has uploaded the first trailer for Patrice Leconte’s “A Promise,” adapted from German author Stefan Zweig’s novella “Journey into the Past.”

This period drama shows the British actress in the role of a young wife falling in love with her husband’s secretary and protégé, played by Richard Madden (“Game of Thrones”).

For his first English-language film, the French director best known abroad for his 1996 film “Ridicule” turned to a story of forbidden love in early 20th-century Germany.

Alan Rickman rounds out the cast in the role of the husband, a rich industrial magnate. “A Promise” premiered last fall at the Venice and Toronto film festivals and will arrive in French and Belgian theaters in April 2014. Release dates for other countries have yet to be announced.
