The movie looks like a tough sell to say the least, with a plot that revolves around the relationship between a young sex addict and a man three times her age that chains her to a radiator. I don't mean to oversimplify ,but really -- there is no other way to put it. The film was directed by Craig Brewer (Hustle And Flow), and stars Christina Ricci, Samuel L. Jackson and Justin Timberlake. Timberlake still might have that big question mark hanging over his acting career, but I'll admit A Special Christmas Box was hilarious. The film also had some really beautiful pulp-art posters and an invitation for people to cut their own trailer for the film to post on the official site.
Now the official trailer has hit the net, and I still think it will be a miracle if this movie manages to make it to the screen without at least a little saber-rattling about misogyny. For starters, Ricci spends most of trailer in her underwear. Although it seems a little early in the game to start drawing any conclusions. It looks like there is a lot to this film and I doubt a two-minute trailer is going to cover it. So take a look, and tell me what you think.
