Worth Watching - Nov 1: Stephen Daldry's The Reader Trailer
Here it is. The movie that the Weinstein's are so confident in, they shoved Cormac McCarthy's The Road out of the way so that it could have its time in the spotlight. And is it worth all that trouble? I definitely don't think so. We're talking about The Reader, a very sensual drama starring Kate Winslet and David Kross. The twisted side of this is that obviously the film hinges so much more on David Kross' performance, not Winslet's, but everyone is abuzz about her. Don't get me wrong, I don't think this looks awful, I think it looks good, but there's no reason it should be getting as much time in the spotlight as it is.
