Indy Drama At Its Best
13 January 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'm picky about the movies I watch.

I'm tired of Hollywood's recycling and then killing good originals.

So I went over to a friend's house to watch and Indy movie. I saw Jordana on the television show My Boys and she had a natural knack for comedy. Now I find out that isn't all.

She plays this part so well I found myself falling back into that time when movies were supposed to pull you in and make you forget you were sitting in a chair watching, at the same time you're gripping something because you want to know more.

I'm not usually into drama but I have to say this is one to watch.
