Nights in Rodanthe
We'll file a full report from our Nights in Rodanthe visit with Gere, Lane and Sparks on September 23 and watch for our review September 26.
Miracle at St. Anna
Lee has responded on film with Miracle at St. Anna, a tale of an all-black regimen of troops in World War II and the struggles and triumphs of this true story should be enough to inspire emotion and Oscar nominations.
The film reunites Shia with director D.J. Caruso and executive producer Steven Spielberg in this race against time heart-wrenching thriller. The trio previously conquered the genre with mastery in Disturbia. Joining the triplets of thrills for this go around is Billy Bob Thornton and Michelle Monaghan.
Interesting fact: While at the Four Seasons Beverly Hills to meet with John Cusack and the Igor cast, SheKnows into Billy Bob Thornton. A snippet of the conversation:
Billy Bob: Hey, how you doin'?
It is an interesting premise, unique and compelling. Also featuring Mark Ruffalo, Blindness is from the director The Constant Gardner(awesome film!).
The Lucky Ones
Three soldiers returning from the Iraq War (McAdams, Michael Pena and Tim Robbins) have suffered injuries in battle. They find themselves back home in a country that has moved on in so many levels.
A road movie that may prove the film formula to generate series box office success to a film centered on the Iraq War. Watching those three actors cramped in a car for days on end should prove to be a lesson in acting chemistry.
Up next...October finds Anne Hathaway generating Oscar buzz and Guy Richie returns to his roots!
