Third Person is a 2013 British-German-American romance film directed and written by Paul Haggis and starring an ensemble cast consisting of Liam Neeson, Mila Kunis, Adrien Brody, Olivia Wilde, James Franco, Moran Atias, Kim Basinger, and Maria Bello. The film premiered at the 2013 Toronto Film Festival.
The film tells three inter-connected love stories that take place in Paris, New York and Rome.
Paris: Michael (Liam Neeson), a writer who recently left his wife Elaine, receives a visit from his lover Anna (Olivia Wilde). The story explores their very complicated on/off relationship due to her inability to commit because of a terrible secret.
New York: Julia (Mila Kunis), an ex-soap opera actress turned hotel maid is accused of harming her young son, a charge which she firmly denies. As a result of these charges, he is now in the custody of her ex-husband Rick (James Franco) who is trying everything in his power to take the boy away from her. Meanwhile, she is trying at all costs to regain custody of her son.
Rome: Scott (Adrien Brody), an American business man on a trip to Italy, falls in love with a Romanian woman, Monika (Moran Atias). Scott is inevitably drawn into a plot where he tries to free Monika's daughter who has been kidnapped by a Spanish gangster and is being held for ransom. Emotions run high as the viewer and Scott question whether this is a set up or not.
The first international trailer of the film was released on 15 April 2014, followed by a domestic poster on the next day. The first US trailer was released on 18 April. The film was released in the United States on 20 June 2014.
Third Person received negative reviews from critics. The film has a 24% approval rating on the review aggregator website Rotten Tomatoes, based on 102 reviews with an average rating of 4.4/10, with the consensus: "Third Person finds writer-director Paul Haggis working with a stellar cast and a worthy premise; unfortunately, he fails to fashion a consistently compelling movie out of the intriguing ingredients at his disposal." Metacritic gave the film a rating of 37/100, based on 27 reviews.
The film was released on DVD and Blu-ray Disc on 30 September 2014.
