It's good to have you back, Jude!
His latest looks like a hoot, too. "Dom Hemingway" (trailer below), which recently played at the Toronto International Film Festival, sees Law turning the roguish charm-o-meter to 11 as a bank thief who, released from prison after 12 years, goes about collecting what's owed him and reconnecting with his long-estranged daughter (Emilia Clarke). Judging from the trailer, it is going to be a wild, rude, wonderful little ride. At one point the trailer promises that it's from the producers of "Sexy Beast," and boy does it look it -- super-stylized, foul-mouthed, divine.
"Don Hemingway" was written and directed by Richard Shepard, a super-talented but weirdly underappreciated writer/director who made the gonzo black comedies "The Matador" and "The Hunting Party" (a movie you should really track down if you haven't seen it; great Richard Gere performance) and the superb documentary "I Knew It Was You," about noted character actor John Cazale. (He's mostly been directing high-end TV stuff since "Hunting Party," including "I Knew It Was You," which initially aired on HBO.)
Hopefully "Don Hemingway" will serve as a return-to-form for both Law and Shepard. Sadly, it won't be released in America until April 4, 2014. Frowny-face emoticon!
