Rinko Kikuchi @ The Brothers Bloom

Rian Johnson is back with another film – The Brothers Bloom – the director that brought us Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s noir detective in Brick. I love the self-contained Brick so much, I’ve watched it at least 5x. Rachel Weisz, Adrien Brody and Mark Ruffalo star in The Brothers Bloom.

Brody’s character, one-half of the world’s best con artists, decides to quit his life of crime. However, he’s persuaded by his brother – Ruffalo – to do one more job, swindling Rachel Weisz’s eccentric millionaire, but she turns the table on the duo.

Noah Segan (Brick) and Rinko Kikuchi (Babel) co-star in the film, and it hits theaters on October 24

Norah Jones @ My Blueberry Nights

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.
