Ask the Dust
The story of a struggling writer and a young woman looking for security, is a good love story. Colin Farrell and Salma Hayek make an interesting couple. There is more than a little chemistry between these two, who meet in Depression era LA. I liked the subtleties of this story, where the characters work for what they get, and take their lumps as they come. Idina Menzel, Donald Sutherland and Justin Kirk round out the supporting cast well. Satisfying drama.
