The Tourist (2010)

(PG-13) 103 mins

Synopsis: Revolves around Frank, an American tourist visiting Italy to mend a broken heart. Elise is an extraordinary woman who deliberately crosses his path.

Director: Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck

Writers: Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck (screenplay), Christopher McQuarrie (screenplay), Julian Fellowes (screenplay), Jérôme Salle (motion picture “Anthony Zimmer”)

Stars: Johnny DeppAngelina Jolie and Paul Bettany

Serious Jest:  (Don’t Bother)  This movie features long scenes of dialogue, presumably for character development, and to get you invested in the characters & their relationship.  However, the script left me feeling bored, instead.  I also found the storyline to be predictable.  Johnny Depp manages to make his character more interesting through his sheer acting ability, but ultimately, it’s not enough.  Also, IMHO, Angelina Jolie looked downright gaunt in this movie; she looks much better with some weight on her.
