Release Date: November 2, 2012
Thoughts: Looking like he just stepped out of the Edward Scissorhands stage show, Sean Penn continues to refuse to be pigeonholed in any kind of genre or role. I’m not entirely sold on the film based on the preview as it looks like any number of “prodigal son” films we’ve seen before. Penn is a good actor with good instcints…but he’s also self-indulgent at times which can rub viewers the wrong way. With his soft lilting voice, crazy hair, and penchant for make-up, this character could get real old real fast. Never count Penn out, though.
