Book to film: Reservation Road
Joaquin Phoenix sports a beard and looks like a teacher- actually he plays a teacher-in this movie but don't let the corduroy blazers deter you. This film looks amazing. At first I couldn't tell what it was about and had to go and read a description on Amazon.com. I must get my manicured hands on a copy ASAP. The movie is one that I must see even if it looks haunting and emotional. I will be walking out of the theater with tears in my eyes, I know it.
I adore Joaquin, even with a beard. Mark Ruffalo, Jennifer Connelly and Mira Sorvino round out the cast.
