Your typical American audience will salivate over a movie like L'Idol. For the simple reason of nudity and sexual overtones, truck loads of fans will pile up and wait in line to see a movie like this. Leelee Sobieski has tempted her fan base for years to star in an "art house" picture like this one. Her natural beauty has kept her a popular actress since the start of her career. The French / Polish actress has fooled around with doing swim suit moments in the Glass House and cover up jobs in the NBC movie Uprising. Now, the world gets to see some brief nudity from an actress who has millions of fans who want to see her "show all." But, the movie hasn't been picked up in America?! Two years later, a movie that should have made millions at the video stores hasn't even stepped foot in the U.S. L'Idol is considered your typical French film where sex is always the setting. Although this movie is not about sex, most of your typical French films has the hidden background of sexual struggle between characters throughout the movie. L'Idol has been greatly over looked and should be on the American video store shelves as soon as possible.
