Edgar Ramírez is getting to the Heart of the matter…
The 44-year-old Venezuelan actor will star opposite Gugu Mbatha-Raw in the passionate love story Nobody’s Heart from The Bookshop director Isabel Coixet of Spain.
Adapted from William Boyd’s short story Cork and based on the life of celebrated Portuguese poet Fernando Pessoa, the film follows Lily (Raw), who is forced to confront the sudden and devastating death of her husband. She inherits his cork factory and begins to form an unexpected, highly charged relationship with his enigmatic co-worker, igniting repressed imagination and passion, and discovering unknown truths about both herself and her late husband.
The film is set against the backdrop of Lisbon in the 1930s, with Coixet directing and John Fiedler producing.
“This is a fascinating, twisted and sexually charged love story between two characters sharing a unique passion with the background of Portugal in the 1930s,” said Coixet. “After reading William Boyd’s script, I completely fell in love with the story and I know there’s a hunger out there for these stories.”
