"Can love survive the fall of paradise?
"During a weekend, two shady businessmen (Paxton and Dillane) flee to the Cayman Islands to avoid federal prosecution. But their escape ignites a chain reaction that leads a British native (Bloom) to commit a crime that changes the nation.
"Traffic" with a touch of Quentin Tarantino
I saw the second screening of this film, at the Toronto Film Festival.
It reminded me a little bit like the film "Traffic" with a hint of
Quentin Tarantino. The movie threads together multiple story lines and
shifts back and forth through time.
Bill Paxton has a great performance as a shady business man who escapes
with this daughter to the Cayman Islands.
Orlando Bloom's character is the most endearing. I found I could relate
to his character the most. Shy (Bloom) was the classic boy from the
wrong side of the tracks, who is completely in love with the rich girl,
Andrea (Zoe Saldana).
Zoe Saldana has a great performance as well. Her character goes from a
sweet girl who makes a complete 180 turn to a druggie /(how to put this
politically correct) very easy girl.
Overall I really enjoyed the movie. Frank E. Flowers did a really great
job with his debut. The story was really intriguing and the setting was
beautiful. A really well done film.
