Woody's got Leo! In the writer-director's latest urban dramedy, Branagh is pitch-perfect as the filmmaker's cinematic dopplegänger. In his best performance in ages, Branagh inhabits every twitch, stammer and neurotic glitch of the auteur's famed persona, and--how could Woody let this role get away--he gets to intertwine with the gorgeous book editor Janssen, model Theron, actress Griffith and ingenue Ryder.
As a celebrity journalist, dazzled by fame and suffering a midlife crisis, he dumps wife Davis and plunges into his glitzy Brave New World. But while his ex-wife unexpectedly rises in the starry firmament, Branagh repeatedly chooses the wrong fast lane to emotional enlightenment and show-biz heaven. Bleak, wickedly observed, shot in glorious B&W--and it's got Leo!
