From everything I’ve seen and heard about Wong Kar Wai’s latest, and his first American movie “My Blueberry Nights”, I can’t see myself not loving the hell out of this movie. As a fan of Wong (hell, I’m such a fan I think his “2046” was brilliant!), this is definitely on my must-see list. Here are more images from the movie.
After a rough break-up, Elizabeth sets out on a journey across America, leaving behind a life of memories, a dream and a soulful new friend; a cafe owner–all while in search of something to mend her broken heart. Waitressing her way through the country, Elizabeth befriends others whose yearnings are greater than hers, including a troubled cop and his estranged wife and a down-on-her luck gambler with a score to settle. Through these individuals, Elizabeth witnesses the true depths of loneliness and emptiness, and begins to understand that her own journey is part of a greater exploration within herself.
Starring Norah Jones, Jude Law, Natalie Portman, Rachel Weisz, David Strathairn, and directed by Wong Kar Wai.
If you can find it in limited release, good luck.
