1913, Budapest. A young, idealistic Hungarian woman (played by newcomer Juli Jakab) finds herself adjusting to city life just as World War I is about to break out.

Check out the official U.S. trailer for "Sunset," a new Hungarian-language period drama from acclaimed Budapest-born writer-director Laszlo Nemes, who previously made his feature debut with 2015's Oscar-winning Holocaust drama "Son of Saul."

"Sunset," which won the FIPRESCI Prize at this year's Venice Film Festival, will be released theatrically in the States sometime in the winter, via Sony Picture Classics. Watch the trailer above.

1913, Budapest, in the heart of Europe as World War I approaches.

The young Irisz Leiter arrives in the Hungarian capital with high hopes to work as a milliner at Leiter, the legendary hat store that once belonged to her late parents; but she is quickly sent away by the new owner, Oszkar Brill. While preparations are under way at the store to host important wealthy, royal guests, a man abruptly comes to Irisz looking for Kalman Leiter, who he says is her brother.

Refusing to leave the city, the young woman follows Kalman's tracks, her only link to a lost past. Her quest brings her through the dark, dusty streets of Budapest, where only the Leiter hat store shines, into the turmoil of a civilization on the eve of its downfall.
