Angst in the Time of Cholera

The trailer is now available for the adaptation of Somerset Maugham's The Painted Veil, starring Naomi Watts, Ed Norton, Liev Schreiber and Toby Jones. It hits theaters in December and looks like it might appeal to fans of The English Patient or A Passage to India. (Greta Garbo starred in the 1934 version, fyi.) -- Amy


  1. Is it just me or is Edward Norton's hottie factor bumped up considerably by that accent?! --Kim

  2. Yes, the accent is tres hot. It's in full use in the Illusionist too, in which Mr. Norton plays a smouldering lover/mysterious magician to great romantic effect. Abracadabra!
