So so movie based on an important if dated book
on 7 June 2014
I think this may have gone straight to video? Not sure. I don't remember seeing it come out. Anyway with Colin Farrell and Sama Hayek expectations were quite high. But I'm not sure either of them can act and there didn't seem to be a huge amount of chemistry there. For novelist John Fante fans the movie is actually quite faithful to the movie - except for the ending but I'm not going to do a plot spoiler here. If you have read the book then this DVD is worth getting. If not, not really.
