RR Watch: Wong Kar Wai’s My Blueberry Nights
My Blueberry Nights is based on a Hong Kong short film, and it’s Wong Kar Wai’s first English-language feature.
Synopsis: After a rough break-up, Elizabeth (Nora Jones) sets out on a journey across America, leaving behind a life of memories, a dream and a soulful new friend; a cafe owner–all while in search of something to mend her broken heart. Waitressing her way through the country, Elizabeth befriends others whose yearnings are greater than hers, including a troubled cop and his estranged wife and a down-on-her luck gambler with a score to settle. Through these individuals, Elizabeth witnesses the true depths of loneliness and emptiness, and begins to understand that her own journey is part of a greater exploration within herself.
