Charlize Theron and Javier Bardem are two doctors trying to find love to the backdrop of war in Africa. What could go wrong?

Theron and Bardem star in Sean Penn's fifth directorial feature 'The Last Face', which also stars Adèle Exarchopoulos, Jean Reno and Jared Harris.

Here's the official synopsis:

The Last Face centers around a love affair between Dr. Miguel Leon (Javier Bardem), a relief-aid doctor, and Dr. Wren Petersen (Charlize Theron), the director of an international aid organization.

Set against the devastating backdrop of war-torn Liberia, Miguel and Wren must find a way to keep their relationship alive in extraordinarily difficult conditions battling their mutual passion for the value of life matched by the intensity of their diametrically opposed opinions on how best to solve the conflict that surrounds them.

'The Last Face' is set for release in Irish cinemas in 2017.
