The movie-tie-in edition of David Mitchell's captivating third novel that erases the boundaries of language, genre and time to offer a meditation on humanity' s dangerous will to power, and where it may lead us.
A reluctant voyager crossing the Pacific in 1850; a disinherited composer blagging a precarious livelihood in between-the-wars Belgium; a high-minded journalist in Governor Reagan's California; a vanity publisher fleeing his gangland creditors; a genetically modified "dinery server" on death-row; and Zachry, a young Pacific Islander witnessing the nightfall of science and civilisation – the narrators of Cloud Atlas hear each other's echoes down the corridor of history, and their destinies are changed in ways great and small.
The film adaptation is written and directed by Tom Tykwer (Run Lola Run), Andy Wachowski and Lana Wachowski (The Matrix), starring Tom Hanks, Susan Sarandon, Hugo Weaving, Halle Barry, Jim Sturgess, and Hugh Grant.
