Maybe someone can help me with this one bcz I might have entirely gotten things wrong. So I'm watching this trailer for an upcoming Tom Hanks / Halle Berry movie and I see something really strange. No, not Hanks' facial hair; Jim Sturgess in Yellowface[starts at 1:53]:
That is Jim Sturgess, right? Anyways, here's the directors explaining the film, in which they comment that the actors are to play multiples rolls: different ages, different races, and different genders[starts at 1:05]:
I don't get it. Even if people are perfectly "cool" about this, how can you look at that guy's face and think he looks perfectly normal? Oh, wow, and it's Jim Sturgess from 21. How odd is that?

Apparently the two actors play different roles in another part of the film, and from this image it looks like the actress, Doona Bae, is playing a white lady?

"but I feel compelled to point out that as much as the trailer portrayed a lovey dovey relationship between Hae-joo Im and Sonmi~451, in the end Sonmi reveals that he was a huge traitor scumbag government plant." Isn't that never confirmed though? It heavily hints that he is a traitor but in the end they never find out for sure. Kinda like in 1984 life was so awful for them all in that world that if the rebels did turn out to be a government trap they wouldn't be surprised but both books never make it clear if the suspicions were true. At least that's what I thought.
