Christina Ricci is definitely one of my favourite actresses. I’ve always liked Samuel L. Jackson as well. And I’ve never really liked Justin Timberlake, though am yet to see Alpha Dog. Luckily Justin is not around too much in this one.
If you like seeing Samuel sing and play guitar, check this out. If you like seeing Christina Ricci half naked a lot, check this out. If you want to see a good film, see this one. I know that mention about Christina is a bit out of order, but she is a pretty woman and is not wearing that much clothes in this film. I would not call this a regular erotic movie though, its not that kind of movie.
At the beginning there were some small scenes that brought to my mind Lilja 4-Ever. That’s a good movie by the way. And more touching then this one.
Samuel’s side story is not on the same level really, perhaps there was no time to concentrate on that one more – at least I think there was more to it, it did not seem complete. Otherwise a very touching film. Well cast, including Justin. And if you usually like Justin’s acting, then this should be just as good if not better.
