Angela Cory’s Office Seeking 60-Year Sentence In Marissa Alexander’s Re-Trial
I love to watch movie trailers and target films for future viewing. My wife and I go twice a month with three other couples to dinner and a flick. So, needles to say, we're always on the lookout for something different and fun. Not easy to find. The other night, after watching Man of Steel, we were talking about upcoming titles and someone mentioned Adore. I hadn't heard of it but found the trailer. How could I help but have my curiosity piqued. It was written by Christopher Hampton, Oscar winning screenwriter. It stars two-time Oscar nominee, Naomi Watts and multi-time Emmy and Golden Globe nominated actress, Robin Wright. What could go wrong? Watch this trailer and judge for yourself:
Sometimes a movie is provocative, coming from a better understanding of human nature. Other times it deals with unusual circumstances that are often swept under the carpet or kept quiet for reasons of guilt or shame. But generally there's an enlightenment. What am I missing here?
This the best I could do since it seems A.M.P.A.S. has snagged any copies from YouTube and the White House hasn't put one out yet. Updated with a better one from Hollywood Reporter.
