The Fall...

I've been meaning to post about this for awhile now. Forgive me for being an awful blogger but school was getting the best of me.

Recently, I saw the most beautiful movie called The Fall. It stars one of my favorite actors, Lee Pace of Pushing Daisies fame (R.I.P). The film is set in 1920's Los Angeles and Pace plays Roy Walker, a Hollywood stuntman who got seriously hurt while on the job. To make matters worse, the woman he loves, an actress, leaves him for the leading actor in the movie that caused Walker's accident. Basically, the man has no will to live. I won't give away anymore of the plot because I want you all to see this amazing piece of work. Pace is amazing in this movie, truly at his finest but the best part of the movie.....


newcomer child actress, Catinca Untaru. I dare you to watch this movie and not fall in love with her. I'm telling you, if I was guaranteed a child as adorable as her I'd go out and get myself knocked up right this second! This is gonna sound cruel but I usually detest child actors. They always seem to "overact" and can be downright annoying. Untaru is nothing like that, she doesn't even seem to be acting and she has the most adorable Eastern European accent that plays a big role in her character's development. The chemistry between Untaru and Pace is amazing. I read somewhere that the director, Tarsem Singh, encouraged Pace to call Untaru by her real name in some of the scenes so they could get natural reactions out of her and boy did it work.



Isn't she just a doll! Look at her in her little outfit. You MUST watch this movie. Rent it or Netflix it today!

I saw a trailer for this film a while back and had forgotten about it. It looks wonderful. Thanks for the reminder!
