War and Women in DVD this week

Out in DVD this week, in The Wind that Shakes the Barley, Irish brothers in post WW I deal with rebel factions and the government. Cillian Murphy is outstanding in this Palm d'Or winner at the Caanes Film Festival in 2006.

In Stephanie Daley a young woman and her psychiatrist explore their inner struggles. An intense, personal film.

Georgia Rule is an uneven, disappointing mess. The acting is forced, the writing poor, editing clumsy. A real disappointment considering all the talent involved with this film.

Cillian Murphy is good in nearly everything, but I always forget about him for some reason.

And I believe that Georgia Rule is awful.

Agreed on Murphy, I especially liked him in Breakfast on Pluto.
