Movie kicks of with parts of big murder scene in some diner, and you don’t see the end of this ’till the end of the movie, so it kinda makes you watch it. Excellent cast, especially Forest Whitaker and Dakota Fanning, who carried this movie along with Guy Pierce to a pretty decent level. I wonder if that little girl does anything else in her life besides movies, she’s filming like 5 movies a month…

Anywhoo, classic storytelling of separate lives of the characters and how they intersect, but unlike other movies, this one takes a slow ride through the lives of characters. Personally Forest Whitaker’s performance just blew me away, as usual. They keep feeding him this kind of roles, and he will soon become my favorite actor.

If you’ve seen Babel, or other movies with this type of story telling you know what to expect. And lets not forget Kate Beckinsale, this time with no vampires and werewolves to fight. Worth seeing.

Director: Rowan Woods

Cast: Dakota Fanning, Forest Whitaker, Guy Pearce,  Kate Beckinsale…

Fun Stuff: Dakota Fanning was apparently difficult to work with, and director ended up cutting many of her scenes. I guess spoiled brat sindrome is emmerging here and Dakota may end up like other kiddie stars
