My Blueberry Nights
Source: Catholic News Service
Noted Chinese director Wong Kar Wai's English-language debut tells of a young woman (singer Norah Jones in her movie debut) who, abandoned by her boyfriend, finds solace with an empathetic diner owner (Jude Law), after which she embarks on a cross-country odyssey of self-discovery encountering an alcoholic cop (David Straitharn), his estranged wife (Rachel Weisz), and a fearless gambler (Natalie Portman, giving the film's standout performance) along the way. Though poetically shot, generally well acted, and with characters all drawn with an underlying moral decency, the artsy film frequently drags. Some profanity and a few expletives, a couple of brief violent episodes, smoking, drinking. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-III -- adults. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG-13 -- parents strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.
