See it for Jeremy Northam!, 18 June 2002
Author: gibsonny5

I happened upon this entertaining little film one night on television. While it is far from perfect, it is different and interesting. I had heard some friends talk about Jeremy Northam, but had never seen him in anything. Wow! This man has serious sex appeal. I've now seen him in a few other films (check out the Winslow Boy) and he is so consistently good. He is someone I could see as James Bond - he has that same handsome, intelligent and self-deprecating quality as Sean Connery.

Parker Posey is interesting in this - it's nice to see a female lead who is a little different and not out of that cookie cutter mold.

It's definitely worth viewing. Women will probably like it much more than men.
