First Look at Viggo Mortensen and Kirsten Dunst in Two Faces of January

The Playlist points us to this first pic from the directorial debut of Drive screenwriter Hossein Amini. The film is based on a Patricia Highsmith novel about a con man (Mortensen) and his wife who hook up an American tutor (Oscar Isaac) in Istanbul.  The description on Amazon:

Three of them are waiting. Rydal Keener is waiting for something exciting to happen in his grubby little Athens hotel. At forty-odd, Chester MacFarland has been waiting much longer, expecting his life of stock manipu­lation and fraud to catch up with him. And Colette, Chester’s wife, is waiting for something altogether different.

After a nasty little incident in the hotel, they all wait together. As the stakes—and the tension—in their three-cornered waiting game mount, they learn that while passports and silence can be bought, other things can cost as much as your life.
