[Film] The Life Of David Gale... [Oct. 2nd, 2004|10:25 am]
The Love Bug
[Current Mood |workingworking]

We watched The Life Of David Gale last night, with the phenomenal Kevin Spacey and the gorgeous Kate Winslet.

For those that haven't seen it, it's a story about David Gale (Spacey) who is an anti-death-sentence activist, who ironically ends up on death row for murder of Constance Harraway (Laura Linney). 4 days before he is due to be executed, David gets in contact with Bitsey Bloom (Winslet) for an exclusive 3-day interview.

During these 3 days, Bitsey starts to believe that David may be innocent after all and uses the information given by David to try and prove his innocence.

A very well constructed film, with solid acting by a very powerful cast.

My rating: 9/10
Recommendation: Hell, yeah!

Just popped over to say hello, and I also agree that the film is a cracker. With a good twist at the end, I love a twist that I can't see coming. :)

Blimey, there's a blast from the past!! Like the new hair, btw! :o)

I thought you were already on my friends list... it seems as though you created a new account, but didn't tell me! *pout*

It's nice to hear from you. :o)

With regard to the twist, Caroline says she got it about half way through the film. I hate it when she does that! :oP

Nope, I'm slooooooooooooooow when it comes to some films. I just don't get it! And Josh has to explain things to me. We have a role reversal here I think! ;-p
