For those tracking the post-Harry Potter careers of the series' central actors, it's hard to argue that Emma Watson hasn't been the brightest star so far. Along her eclectic selection of films since the last installation in the beloved series in 2011, Watson has added "political thriller" to her growing catalog with the brand new Colonia.

German director Florian Gallenberger's film debuted this week at the Toronto International Film Festival, which stars Watson and Daniel Bruhl as a young couple caught in the Pinochet coup of 1973 in Chile. Bruhl's character is captured by the secret police, forcing Watson to trace his whereabouts to the dangerous southern section of the country - Colonia Dignidad - where she must join a cult to blend in and rescue him.

No international dates for the film have yet been set. Watch the first official trailer below.
