Based on a True Story Trailer

"You're in danger carrying this trust…" An official international trailer from France has debuted for the latest Roman Polanski drama titled Based on a True Story, which first premiered at the Cannes Film Festival this year. Most of the reviews were mixed to negative, despite two great performances, the story is redundant and bland and the film never amounts to much. Based on a True Story is about a famous writer, played by Emmanuelle Seigner, going through a tough time who hires a ghost writer to help her with her work. However, it turns out "L", played by Eva Green, is more of an obsessive admirer who actually has an ulterior motive. The full cast includes Vincent Perez, Damien Bonnard, Dominique Pinon, Noémie Lvovsky, and Camille Chamoux. This is worth watching just for Eva Green, but that's about all I can say.

Here's the first international trailer for Roman Polanski's Based on a True Story, direct from YouTube:

He should come back to L.A. for the movie premiere. Plenty of people would love to see him back in the States.

Of course, Eva Green and Polanski might be good enough. But it looks more than that ...

I personally think Roman Polanski is overrated and he hasn't done any worth watching in some time. This looks B-O-R-I-N-G. I'll pass.

Olivier Assayas and Roman Polanski. What a team. This looks great.

That describes more than ninety percent of all cinema. Not that they have a choice if they want to work ...

Many duplicate comments here... ._. The google auto-translation es not too good, but It still doesn't catch my atention. About his problems with the law... it's another subject, but everyone is free to protest. I am not too up to date with this issue.
