Nice pace, intelligent handling of the ‘issue’ behind the story. Acting was solid by all main characters. If you enjoyed American Beauty you should enjoy this. If you want an exciting film go elsewhere. If you want to be treated like an intelligent adult who doesn’t need every single step and twist of a tale to be made blindingly obvious then I would highly recommend it.
Catherine Zeta Jones was better than I thought, last saw her in Darling Buds of May – she has come far. Benicio Del Toro was outstanding took me a moment to place him, having put on a few pounds since Usual Suspects.
Jury Service starts tomorrow. Not expecting anything juicy, and obviously I won’t be discussing it here, but for some reason I have an urge to watch Twelve Angry Men.
