"Separate Lies" is a compelling, humor-tinged romantic mystery that is not so much a "who done it" as an exploration of the riddle of why people make the fatal errors they do - in life, in marriage and when their decisions count the very most. By exposing the raw inner world of an ideal-seeming marriage that has fallen into peril in the wake of a crime, the film weaves themes of secrecy, betrayal and forgiveness through a driving narrative and intense performances focused on uncovering the primal human truths that can lie beneath the most placid surfaces. From Julian Fellowes, the academy award-winning writer of "Gosford Park". Starring Tom Wilkinson, Emily Watson, and Rupert Everett.
Today's episode of The 404 Podcast deals with a lot of movies, which makes sense after last night's utterly forgettable Academy Awards, or so Wilson claims, because he forgot to watch. The awards committee certainly isn't lacking a sense of irony after selecting Sandra Bullock for the Best Female Performance in "The Blind Side." The actress also won the Razzie for Worst Female Actor in "All About Steve."
Academy Award winner Robert Towne ("Chinatown") writes and directs "Ask the Dust," set under the brutally sunny skies of Depression-era Los Angeles. Based on novelist John Fante's masterpiece, Towne's interpretation focuses on a city exotic and vulgar, glamorous and raunchy - a place of heat and dust. Full of imports - palm trees from Egypt and people from everywhere in search of health and wealth, fame and fortune - L.A. is the city of first and last resort, where all dreams are supposed to come true. So it is for Arturo Bandini (Colin Farrell), a son of Italian immigrants who dreams of becoming a famous novelist and marrying a beautiful blonde, and Camilla Lopez (Salma Hayek) a Mexican who longs to marry a WASP and shed her last name. In a time when Anglo-Chicano relations hang by tattered threads, Bandini and Camilla collide with one another, fighting the city and themselves to make their dreams come true.
Academy Award winners Russell Crowe and Renee Zellweger star in this triumphant, powerfully inspiring true story. In a time when America needed a champion, an unlikely hero would arise, proving how hard a man would fight to win a second chance for his family and himself. Suddenly thrust into the national spotlight, boxer Jim Braddock would defy the odds against him and stun the world with one of the greatest comebacks in history. Driven by love for his family, he willed an impossible dream to come true.
From writer/director Stephen Gaghan, winner of the Best Screenplay Academy Award for "Traffic," comes "Syriana," a political thriller that unfolds against the intrigues and corruption of the global oil industry. From the players brokering back-room deals in Washington to the men toiling in the oil fields of the Persian Gulf, the film's multiple storylines weave together to illuminate the human consequences of the fierce pursuit of wealth and power.
A young woman is transformed by a mysterious curse and the only one who can set her free from the ancient sorcery is a powerful wizard who lives in an enchanted moving castle. From Studio Ghibli and Hayao Miyazaki, Oscar-winning director of "Spirited Away".
