Despite how incredibly boring that sounds, the cast is absolutely stacked with some fantastic actors not limited to Alfred Molina, Rosamund Pike, Oliva Williams, Emma Thompson and the before mentioned Sarsgaard. Variety voted the script as the best unproduced British screenplay of 2007, so it may end up actually being fairly high quality. See for yourself after the jump. Read the rest of this entry »
