Escape from Tomorrow

With Escape from Tomorrow, one fears the story behind the movie would loom larger than the movie itself. Luckily, that is not the case. After all, it opens with a decapitation on Disney World’s Big Thunder Mountain Railroad roller coaster.

Broken English

None July 19th, 2007

s "Sex and the City" without the frilly cocktails.


At its center is a complex and moving performance by Parker Posey, a darling of indie cinema perhaps best known for her work in Christopher Guest's mockumentaries. Here, she is Nora Wilder, a 30something New Yorker desperate to be loved, yet unable to find a decent guy. She finally catches a break when she meets Julien (Melvil Poupaud), a handsome Frenchman whose only flaw seems to be that he's heading back to Paris in a few days.
