Worth Watching - April 15: The Children of Huang Shi Trailer
This trailer came out of nowhere. I didn't even know The Children of Huang Shi existed until I heard about this trailer, but after watching it, I'm sold. I'm very curious to find out more and am already looking forward to seeing it. This indie film is about a young British journalist, played by Jonathan Rhys Meyers, who saves a group of orphaned children during the Japanese occupation of China in 1937. The cast is impressive: Rhys Meyers, Radha Mitchell, Chow Yun Fat, Michelle Yeoh. I suggest that you do not skip over this. Something about Rhys Meyers' performance really has me captivated. Plus the appearance of David Wenham, albeit brief, also has me interested. Let us know what you think.

Now here's a movie worth getting excited about - something with some substance - something about "something" finally. In the same breath, I say that it probably won't release here in Florida until...well until it is on DVD.

Looks awesome, and great to see Michelle Yeoh and Chow Yun Fat. But: a story like that you could tell with images rather than a complete explanation of the plot...

Admitting that I follow Rhys Meyers work, I drove seventy miles to see this movie and I thought it was quite a lovely film GORGEOUS to look at, well done all round, compelling subject, adorable kids, new direction for jonny...and then it utterly disappeared! No press or promotion. I found the ONLY DVD they had at Walmart. I just don't understand it. But I notice it happens to Rhys Meyers...a lot. He's made 36 mostly VERY intriguing films that no one sees...a few you can't even get in the states...
