This movie is very similar to the movie Vanity Fair (2004), in which Robert Pattinson played the older version of Reese Witherspoon's son. Reese and Robert played lovers in Water for Elephants (2011). See more »
So what have you been doing all these years?
I only just got out. I'm hoping for a bit of luck in Paris.
You couldn't have come at a better time.Paris is filthy with money, even the whores are getting rich. Why don't come to dinner tomorrow night? Come and meet my wife.

Uma - never better grade 10+, Kristin - good as usual grade 9, Christina - very good grade 9+, Robert - painful to watch, barely 1. With his bland and totally misguided performance, he managed to ruin the film that would otherwise been good. What were those face expressions?!? Wasn't he supposed to be attractive, desirable, full of sex-appeal? Why no one told him that? Why no one told him that he's not playing a vampire anymore? In fact, it would be great if he played that Twilight vampire, here he obviously rehearsed for a vampire hit by the first rays of sun, just about to experience slow and very painful death. Exactly how I felt while watching him... And no, I don't think he's a bad actor generally, he was just huge miscast for this role. And you just can't have good movie with such a huge miscast in a leading role.
