My Blueberry Nights

2008-06-02 08:33
What it's about:

Elizabeth (Norah Jones), a disenchanted young woman, embarks on a soul-searching journey to distance herself from a broken heart. As emotional wounds begin to fade, Elizabeth's experiences with a series of disconnected strangers lead to new and unexpected chapters in her life. From the poetic musings of a late-night café owner (Jude Law), to the desperate propositions of a down-on-her-luck gambler (Natalie Portman), to the broken bond between a troubled cop (David Strathairn) and his rebellious wife (Rachel Weisz), these individuals redefine Elizabeth's perspectives on life, relationships and, ultimately, her own identity. Slowly, Elizabeth begins letting go of the past as she discovers a new path for herself – one towards true love.

What the critics say:

"Only in flashes does Wong Kar Wai let you forget about the relentless, meticulous beauty long enough to lose yourself inside it."
Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune

"My Blueberry Nights hints that buried in Wong's spicy odd noodlings may be an even better conventional filmmaker."
Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly

"In My Blueberry Nights, Wong Kar Wai and his cinematographer, Darius Khondji, make America look so pretty that you may have trouble recognizing it."
A.O. Scott,New York Times

"My Blueberry Nights is perhaps the most deliriously entertaining thing that Wong has ever made, at least since the equally rapturous Chungking Express."
Peter Sobczynski,

"Since it began shooting in June 2006, it's been on the shelf ever since, and you'll instantly know why. It's like watching ice melt."
Rex Reed, New York Observer

"It may not be what you expect. But with Wong Kar Wai, it seldom is."
John Anderson, Newsday
