Over the past several years, Penelope Cruz has managed to pull off the rare feat of creating a solid Hollywood career while also maintaining her career back in her home country of Spain. It's a juggling act that few international stars manage to pull off successfully.
And just how successfully she's pulling it off has never been more evident than it is in the new trailer for "Twice Born."
Directed by Italian auteur Sergio Castellitto, who previously worked with Cruz on the romance "Don't Move," "Twice Born" tells the story of a single mother (that's Cruz) who returns to Sarajvo with her estranged son (Emile Hirsch!) 16 years after the boy's father was killed during the Bosnian war.
In other words, it's just the kind of emotionally powerful film and performance that gave Cruz the career flexibility she enjoys. So will the Oscar winner add another statue to her mantlepiece? Check out the new trailer, courtesy of Yahoo! Movies, and see why excellence is spelled "Cruz" in any language.
