Newsroom drama detailing the 2004 CBS 60 Minutes report investigating then-President George W. Bush's military service, and the subsequent firestorm of criticism that cost anchor Dan Rather and producer Mary Mapes their careers.
Kiefer and Donald Sutherland share the screen in this brooding western about an embittered gunslinger who attempts to make amends with his estranged father whilst their community is besieged by ruthless land-grabbers.
This marks the first time that Nicole Kidman worked with James Franco and Robert Pattinson. She and Franco were set to star in the play "Sweet Youth of Bird" on Broadway in 2011, and she was attached to star in Bel Ami (2012) opposite Pattinson, but both collaborations never went through.

At 1:36:00, the Bedouin Sheik holds and offers the lamb's head with his left hand. This is contrary to all etiquette, as the right hand is used for eating while the left one is, shall we say, the wiping hand. See more »
This film tells the story of a British woman who travels around Arabia to understand the life in the vast desert. She is undeterred by dangers of war, gangs and thieves.
The last Warner Herzog film I watched was over ten years ago, and I did not enjoy the experience. "Queen of the Desert", fortunately, is way better than I expected it to be. The scenery of the desert is mesmerising, while the people it portrays are very interesting and very different from the Western civilisation. Cinematography is beautiful, and the film is hence a pleasant experience to watch. I also like the romance between Gertrude and the two gentlemen. It is rather unfortunate that her life is not rewarded with happiness on the romantic aspect. I enjoyed watching this film.
