The One Where Milla Jovovich Gets Passed Around

The last time that Robert DeNiro and Edward Norton appeared together was for the heist movie, The Score, a well-acted movie that never really went anywhere (the heist was fairly substandard). The two are reteaming with director John Curran (The Painted Veil, We Don’t Live Here Anymore) for a psychological thriller set in a prison. Norton plays a man convicted of arson and up for parole. DeNiro plays his parole officer. And Milla Jovovich plays Norton’s wife, who attempts to sex DeNiro into releasing her husband.

Adapted from Angus MacLachlan’s (Junebug) own play, the trailer (below) seems to give much of the movie away. At least on the face of it. I’d like to hope with the talent assembled that there’s a lot more bubbling underneath. Junebug and We Don’t Live Here Anymore are two of my favorite movies of the decade, and DeNiro and Norton can act, they just both have issues with script choice. Let’s just hope this one is not as flat as The Score.
