The oft-naked Ewan McGregor (my original Scottish boyfriend) and the lovely Eva Green have a new film that is set to premiere at the Sundace Film Festival this week. The movie, Perfect Sense is a love story set against the backdrop of a widespread pandemic. Green plays an epidemiologist and is one of the few former Bond girls who could do so believably. The preview seems a bit screamy/throwy/weepy, which would certainly not be out of place at Sundance. Have a look for yourself.
To be honest, I like screamy/throwy/weepy and they piqued my interest with Green and McGregor and hooked me entirely by putting them in a bathtub together. The tone of the preview reminded me of one of my favorite end of the world films, 28 Days Later. Except, you know, sadly lacking in Eccleston and rage monkeys. Director David Mackenzie’s other feature with MacGregor was 2003’s Young Adam which was excessively dour but benefited from some epic Tilda Swinton charisma. I dunno if Ms. Green has that certain SWINTON thing.
But, like I said, bathtub.
See what I mean?
Joanna Robinson’s current Scottish boyfriend is James McAvoy, in case you were dying to know. Both Joanna and James are not at all jealous that Dustin and Seth are going to Sundance. Not at all. Dammit, drink the Wasatch dry, boys.
