Vera Farmiga, from "Up In The Air", plays a grocery store clerk who is stuck in a boring marriage trying to raise 2 young kids. She develops a drug habit which she can no longer afford and is forced into rehab. After getting clean and getting her family back she slowly slips backs to her old ways as she finds no other way to dull her pain. Very well acted in an oh so true story that is told way to often in everyday life. In HD!
This downsizing drama was well done in an understated way. And since it was a grown up movie, we even got a little nudity, which is always welcome, even if star Vera Farmiga used a body double. Vera's not usually shy about stripping down, but she just had a baby before shooting and wasn't comfortable with her body.
This heartbreaking drama, a 2006 Sundance Film Festival entry, stars Vera Farmiga as Sophie, a woman utterly devoted to her husband. But when she's unable to get pregnant, she makes an odd but decisive choice to bring a third person, a Korean immigrant (Jung-woo Ha), into their marriage. It's a fateful decision that soon threatens to tear the couple apart and drive Sophie to the brink of total despair.
Vera Farmiga doesn't do bad movies. She doesn't do uninteresting movies. She doesn't shy away from nude scenes. She takes risks. This movie, which also stars Nick Stahl, is a perfect example of the type of movie she does. I don't want to give too much of the plot away, but it has shades of James Spader's Crash, except a lot less nudity. So why cap it? Cuz Vera's sexy as hell, that's why.
