Jude Law stars in new Meirelles film ‘360’


VIENNA - Hollywood actor Jude Law is among the stars of “360” - a new movie partly set in the Austrian capital in which the British heartthrob plays a man whose marriage has hit a lull.

The film is directed by Fernando Meirelles and inspired by Arthur Schnitzler’s play “Reigen,” or “La Ronde.”

While storyline specifics are being kept under wraps, screenwriter Peter Morgan told reporters Tuesday that the plot encompasses a “chain reaction of events” that start when Law’s character, an Englishman in Vienna on business, is stopped from seeing a prostitute.

Law described the script as “really interesting, diverse and challenging” and said he was excited by the project because he is a big fan of Meirelles.

Meirelles, probably best known for “City of God” and “The Constant Gardener” also had his share of praise for Law, calling him “fantastic.”
