Who Will Dig It?
Cinephiles who are looking for an adult movie that isn't an "adult movie."
Three Good Reasons
- 1 Lead actor Michael Fassbender won the prestigious Volpi Cup for his performance when the film premiered at the Venice Film Festival.
- 2 Fassbender reteams with director Steve McQueen (not the one from "Bullitt"), who previously made the highly acclaimed true story "Hunger."
- 3 The film deals with the serious matters of abuse and addiction in a truthful and unflinching manner you don't often see on screen.
Bet You Didn't Know
Actors often complain about living out of hotels, but Carey Mulligan is used to it. As a child, her father was a manager for Intercontinental Hotels, and she grew up living in some of the finest hotels in Europe. But that didn't make her a hotel snob. While she was shooting the movie "Drive," she stayed at a downscale $110-a-night Best Western in Hollywood.
