For Matrix fans Cloud Atlas was one of the movie events of the year. Heralded as a return to form by the Wachowskis after their rather disappointing Speed Racer in 2008, the film is famously complex. To help you figure out the characters, story and settings, we have a fabulous infographic.
The film follows six characters across six time lines – set in the past and the future – and deals with the big themes of life, death, fate, freewill and how “everything is connected”. It can be difficult to see just how everyone and everything is connected: which character is whose soul mate/family member/spouse in what era? Just figuring out how many characters Tom Hanks and Hugh Grant each play and how do they relate to each other can be a little puzzling. To answer all these questions, and more, check out the infographic below (click to enlarge):
Cloud Atlas is available to own on Blu-ray and DVD 1st July.
