When Will Miramax Give Good Movies A Chance?
31 December 2004 | by (United States Minor Outlying Islands) – See all my reviews

"Speakeasy" is an engaging drama. It's being dumped on video with little fanfare. The other "Project Greenlight" film: "Battle of Shaker Heights" is complete garbage. That film got the Greenlight treatment. "Speakeasy" was the runner up in that contest. Everybody in this film gives excellent performances. It's great to see David Strathairn in a starring role. He gives a calm and interesting performance as Bruce Hickman. Stacy Edwards does a good job as his wife, Sophie. There really is no plot because this is a character study. It's really irritating that Miramax gives "Speakeasy" no chance for awards (Or An Audience) , but begs for them for "Cold Mountain".

In The End: It's definitely worth seeing and if you see it in a video store, don't pass it by.
