Academy Award® winners Halle Berry and
Benicio Del Toro star in director Susanne Bier’s (the
Oscar®-nominated “After the Wedding”) powerful new drama
“Things We Lost in the Fire,” a moving and emotionally
compelling drama about two people brought together by fate.
Audrey Burke (Berry) is reeling from the shock of the news
that has just been delivered to her door by the local
police: her warm and loving husband Brian (David Duchovny),
the father of their two young children, has been killed in a
random act of violence.
Once anchored by the love and comforts of their 11-year
marriage, Audrey is now adrift. Impulsively, she turns to
Jerry Sunborne (Del Toro), a down-and-out addict who has
been her husband’s close friend since childhood.
Desperate to fill the painful void caused by her husband’s
death, Audrey invites Jerry to move into the room adjacent
to their garage in the hope that he can help her and her
children cope with their sudden loss. Jerry is facing a
daily battle to stay off drugs, but in his unexpected role
as surrogate parent and friend to Audrey’s son and daughter
he finds a core of inner resilience.
As Jerry and Audrey navigate grief and denial, their fragile
bonds are constantly tested. Working together, however, they
discover the strength to move forward.
