Product Description

Product Description

Academy Award® winner Tilda Swinton gives an utterly compelling performance as a woman on the edge playing a dangerous game in this tense and riveting thriller. Fired from her job, broke and with her judgement clouded by too many vodka shots, Julia hits rock bottom and hatches a reckless plan to kidnap the 8 year-old grandson of a wealthy businessman and hold the boy to ransom. But she finds herself totally unprepared for life as a fugitive with a terrified child in tow, and events soon spiral wildly out of control. With both the authorities and a brutal criminal gang on her tail, a desperate Julia finds herself locked in a deadly fight for survival. Special Features: Interview with Tilda Swinton

Format: DVD
Julia has an unconventional anti-hero in the shape of a drunken, aging, slapper. She'd be a `grenade' but that would require her to have some mates. We're introduced to her with a day-in-the-life passage of her getting paralytic at a party, shouting obnoxiously, making a nuisance of herself and then taking the least judgmental man home with her, washing off the stench of failure from the morning after, getting sacked.

After being forced to attending an AA meeting she becomes aware of the existence of a crack-pot nearby neighbour. Only then does the movie becomes an awesome seat of your pants, on the fly, ransom / kidnapping story.

'Julia' takes an unsavoury character and had me rooting for her by the end, even when she manages to blow half of her opportunities to pieces. Everyday traits, like spinning off ludicrous yarns to get what she wants, now work for her. In the face of immediate danger the distortion of truth remains the only way for her to regain control of the boy.

I thought the finish was coming up at the 100 minute mark, but then it pulled the rug out for underneath me and went on for another 40 minutes and I couldn't be happier! Usually continuing past the expected point of expected climax is the death kneel for a film, but Julia got me so invested in the character on screen that I wanted it to keep going and going. When the credits finally did roll I was disappointed, just because I thought the film had some gas left.

Tilda Swinton puts on a one-woman show (Ala De Niro in Taxi Driver) as she's literally in every scene, so if you dislike her, avoid, otherwise, enjoy the ride.

Tilda Swinton gives a tour de force performance as Julia Harris, a dysfunctional alcoholic living in southern California whose selfish life appears to be painfully disintegrating. She is living on the edge, jobless and in desperate need of money. While attending an AA meeting she is approached by an unstable woman who convinces her to kidnap her estranged eight year old son from his wealthy grandfather. Julia is an unlikeable character who is totally out of her depth and treats the terrified child with disturbing indifference. Unsurprisingly, things don't go as planned. She is forced to flee to Mexico with the boy and in Tijuana is presented with stark choices. This is an exhilarating film. The storytelling is unsentimental and raw, which at times makes uncomfortable viewing, but it is a film that keeps your attention until the very last scene.

Really good movie this; brilliantly acted lead role captures the obsessive alchoholic personality really well, great pacing, tense, some very funny moments. The parts in Mexico are so realistic - supporting roles are all well cast and played, especially the Mex villain at the end...and the ending? Well its not Hollywood is it -very good and funny as well

Loved this film. Tilda plays a great drunk and gets in over her head with her antics but proves rather clever too. I found this quite funny at times,not sure if this was intentional or not. Quite a long film but her acting is great and worth watching.
