VIDEO: New Penelope Cruz Film Shot On Island Of Korcula Set To Hit Cinemas

Hollywood actress Penelope Cruz’s new film “Venuto Al Mondo” (Twice Born), which was partly shot on the Dalmatian island of Korcula in Croatia, is set to be released.

Cruz was on Korcula with her husband Javier Barden and son Leo in September 2011 to shoot scenes for the film which is set to hit cinemas next month. Scenes for the film were also shot in Orebic opposite the island of Korcula on the mainland.

The film is about a girl called Gemma (Penelope Cruz) who visits Sarajevo with her son, Pietro (Pietro Castellitto). The two of them had escaped the city sixteen years ago while the boy’s father, Diego (Emile Hirsch) remained behind and later died. As she tries to repair her relationship with Pietro, Gemma is forced by revelations to face loss, the cost of war and the redemptive power of love.
