Alison Eastwood does what she can with this bland creation, but I have a feeling that the movie character never would have been featured is there a new sex and the city movie in Savannah book. Thanks in large part to a literally mesmerizing performance by Kevin Spacey I'm riveted every time he appears on screen and a well- balanced turn by John Cusack as the sympathetic investigating reporter, who charms us even as he maintains a total and focused receptivity to new information and strange events, the movie fills its two and a half hours with a slow-paced and carefully balanced story that brings us into the suffocating green world of Southern Gothic, with its all its mannered refinements, thick silences and passionate secrets.
Savannah society is a unique and interesting creature. I still think it is an interesting, well cast film - but it could have been done better - and that is a pity. Savannah is lush and plush. Alison's father Clint and screenwriter John Lee Hancock try to accomplish much the same effect here, dancing at the perimeters of things, showing conversations where words can not be discerned.
Even when the story screeches off track by focusing on her character, she makes the logic gaps less bothersome with her is there a new sex and the city movie in Savannah.
A grand style of entertainment at its finest hour. It juxtaposed the "Yankee's" at times ingenuous fascination with all around him. Might have hated the film if I had.
In the episode before the two-part finale, when she decides to follow Petrovsky across the pond, she asks, "Is it time to stop questioning? With a cast of smooth talking, cigarette toting originals, from ravenously stunning Chablis to ex-barrister piano banging Joe to prophetic Minerva there are eccentricities for anyone to appreciate and adore.
Also, the character of Chablis, while entertaining at times, gets really tiresome. Sometimes, the measure of a good garden is the diversity of opinions it attracts: looking back is there a new sex and the city movie in Savannah other writers' comments, one is struck by just how good this one must be.
I didn't know how the casting of the actual Chablis would affect the film, but she really delivers the goods without seeming like stunt casting. Spacey is one of the most threatening figures in all of acting. Do yourself a favor and rent the movie before you read the book. Kevin Spacey, as usual, puts his all into his role as Jim Williams and the Savannah cinematography is superb.
Savannah is a character in the book, and the only unifying force other than the author. It gets incredibly boring in some places, and more attention should've been paid to Jude Law's character- his death didn't have the same shock factor it did in the book-he only had about 10 lines of dialog.
