Oh, married life. Ain’t it grand? One day your wife’s nagging you to take a photo, the next cops are busting in and grabbing her and accusing her of murder. Of course, since you’re Russell Crowe, you’re not gonna take that lying down. No sirree. Check out two clips from Paul Haggis’ “The Next Three Days”, a remake of the French film “Anything for Her”, which is opening everywhere today.
Life seems perfect for John Brennan until his wife, Lara, is arrested for a gruesome murder she says she didn’t commit. Three years into her sentence, John is struggling to hold his family together, raising their son and teaching at college while he pursues every means available to prove her innocence. With the rejection of their final appeal, Lara becomes suicidal and John decides there is only one possible, bearable solution: to break his wife out of prison. Refusing to be deterred by impossible odds or his own inexperience, John devises an elaborate escape plot and plunges into a dangerous and unfamiliar world, ultimately risking everything for the woman he loves.
