When Cloud Atlas is released in Australia on Feb. 21, we can finally check out the film based on the epic novel by David Mitchell. The film covers six different stories over the course of time and space, but the same core group of actors show up from one tale to the next — and not exactly in their most recognisable forms. Thanks to the magic of (a lot of) makeup, the actors transcend race, gender and age to take on different guises and personalities. I've broken down each actor by the multiple characters they play in the film. Check it out.
