Release Date: May 17, 2013
Thoughts: Julianne Moore has made some interesting choices in film as of late…and they haven’t always been good. Though the Oscar nominated star has been on the A-List for some time, in the last few years she’s popped up in several indies that skipped a theatrical run and it’s left me wondering who exactly is choosing her projects. Set to hit the mainstream again with October’s anticipated remake of Carrie, Moore has this little film coming out right at the beginning of a busy summer movie season. Though the premise looks promising and supporting cast nicely diverse (save for Mirror, Mirror’s blandly boring Lily Collins), I still would like to sit down with Ms. Moore and ask “what gives” as it relates to her film compass.
