Ooo. Sleek 60s style, intrigue in foreign lands, maybe some illicit romance? I’m in.
This is the first film as director from screenwriter Hossein Amini (Snow White and the Huntsman, Drive). I hope he knows what he’s doing!
For me I suspect it all depends on the emphasis. Will it be yet another sun-drenched tawdry illicit romance, or will it subvert those expectations and do something interesting?
Well, sure. But until I see the film, I can’t know which way it will go!
I tend to be cynical about films before I’ve seen them because then I’m not disappointed.
