Preview: Bel Ami (2012)


A young soldier returns home and begins affairs with three married women in an attempt to find love, satisfaction and security.

Without making it seem stuffy, this is probably the best they could come up with while highlighting Robert Pattinson.

  • Trailer: C


Pattinson's should-be-trademarked growl/grimace is back and it doesn't look like it's been put to better use. The film looks painful and while I thinkt it would be interesting to see Kristin Scott Thomas, Christina Ricci and Uma Thurman in a costume drama, this probably won't be it.

Oscar Prospects:

With this kind of film, Costume Design and Art Direction are always possibilities, but I wouldn't hold my breath.
