Thanks to the folks at Soft Skull Press for the head's up that Justin Chatwin (Tom Cruise's cute son in War of the Worlds)is set to star in the film adaptation of Michael Turner's The Pornographer's Poem.
This dark comedy is a coming of age story set in the late 1970s about a 16-year old boy who dabbles in pornography after accidentally witnessing his next-door neighbors getting it on. Sounds intriguingly smutty.
And speaking of quirky-sexy, I finally got around to watching Maggie Gyllenhaal and James Spader in Secretary last night, which is supposed to be loosely based off the short story, Bad Behavior by Mary Gaitskill. It didn't do much for me. I think it's one of those "either love it or hate it" flicks. --Amy
