Actor Javier Bardem in a scene from 'Biutiful'

Alejandro González Iñárritu's latest film Biutiful starring Oscar-winning actor Javier Bardem (No Country for Old Men, Vicky Cristina Barcelona) will screen at the 35th Toronto International Film Festival.

This is the story of Uxbal (Javier Bardem). Devoted father. Tormented lover. Mystified son. Underground businessman. Friend of the disposed. Ghost seeker. Spiritual sensitive. A survivor at the invisible margins in today's Barcelona ... Uxbal's story is simple: just one of the complex realities that we all live in today.

Focus Features' Biutiful follows Uxbal a father with ties to illegal activity who is confronted by an old friend, now a policeman.

Bardem won the award for Best Actor at this year’s Cannes Film Festival for the role. Check out his stellar performance in the trailer after the jump.

Stick around to watch the amazing Sea Shepherd's Captain Paul Watson and Captain Pete Bethune from Whale Wars who are scheduled to appear right after Javier.

Captain Paul Watson has dedicated his entire life to saving and protecting wildlife in our oceans around the world, risking his life repeatedly in the battle over whaling. As founder of the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, his supporters have followed him for decades. However, when his show "Whale Wars" hit the air on "Animal Planet" he became a national, if not controversial hero everywhere.
