Romance and Cigarettes
James Gandolfini, Susan Sarandon, Steve Buscemi, Christopher Walken
Turturro has always been a quirky kind of guy, both as a director and actor, and here he comes up with a musical romance the like of which you’ll not encounter in a long time.
Gandolfini plays a man whose seemingly happy life is thrown into confusion when his wife (Sarandon) discovers his affair with a sexy redhead (played brilliantly and show-stealingly by Kate Winslet, in a minor but very major role) and enlists the help of a cousin (Walken) for revenge.
So who is the erring husband to choose, wife or mistress?
It’s a musical in that the cast synch songs from the swinging sixties and it’s a clever and witty piece of moviemaking.
