An interesting failure

Posted : 7 years, 10 months ago on 7 February 2011 04:41

Honestly, beforehand, I had never heard of this movie but since there was a pretty good cast, I thought I should give it a try. First of all, I must admit it was a really intriguing premise. A black boy is born looking like a white boy and when he becomes adult he decides to lie about his origins and pretends to be white to avoid being discriminated. Sounds fascinating, right ? It was indeed spellbinding but unfortunately, the story wasn't developed really well and the end product was rather messy... However, the cast (Anthony Hopkins, Nicole Kidman, Gary Sinise, Wentworth Miller, Jacinda Barret) was pretty good and, above all, Hopkins was really impressive as usual. Still, instead of focusing on this interesting premise, they developed some sub-plots but they were not really interesting. For example, I didn't care much about the relationship between Hopkins and Kidman. Still, it remains an intriguing drama and it is definitely worth a look, especially if you're interested in Hopkins' work.
