Emily Browning

Despite its impressive visuals and interesting premise, Zack Snyder's Sucker Punch became one of the most critically reviled films of 2011. Its unorthodox plot structure explored the concept of sanity, and now lead actress Emily Browning is set to star in another movie that deals with similar themes. Variety reports that Browning has joined the cast of Plush, Twilight director Catherine Hardwicke's newest original film that follows a psychic psychologist who dives into the minds of patients to help them confront their issues, but he soon discovers there is a young girl (Browning) who possesses the same gift he does. More below!

Interestingly, Comingsoon has a remarkably different plot synopsis listed for this movie. They claim the film is actually a romantic suspense thriller about a rock star on the rise (Browning) who loses her band mate and brother to drug overdose and takes comfort in her new replacement guitarist. The two hook up, despite the girl being married with two kids, and when she rebuffs the guitarist's continued advances, she realizes he's unstable and her family's lives are all in danger.

I'm not sure which of these stories I'd rather see. Lords of Dogtown was good but I haven't cared for any of Catherine Hardwicke's other directorial efforts, and Browning is something of a mystery to me since I've only seen her in Sucker Punch and Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events, so neither of these options are enough to really get me interested. If the real synopsis is the "exploring the mind" one, they've got a lot to live up to with Inception still in the public consciousness (and even Tarsem's The Cell covering similar ground with amazing imagery). But the band story sounds like 50 different movies we've seen before, so it seems as though this production is fighting an uphill battle either way.

What talent? She has yet to deliver a performance with any sort of impact or insight. Even in that quasi-pedophile thing that she was in, that was just 90 minutes of pouting and relaxing on beds. Basically the only thing she has going for her is the fact that she breaks out of the blonde hair and boobs archetype that most starlets seem to favor these days.

Ok she has not have any talents, and is very very talentless mindless soulless guy either and director like Zack Snyder(please forgive me Zack i love you) choose him for erotic face and also because the sky tear apart and she fall from sky to pocket of mr.snyder and every other actress have born STAR Dude I really hate Robert Pattison in Twighlit but he is first role actor of new Great Cronenberg Thriller, take it easy
