Today my brother showed up surprisingly. So he had to take care of the kids and we had the chance to go and see another Asia Filmfest movie. Today they showed the "surpise movie". We were lucky. They showed "My Blueberry Nights" directed by Wong Kar Wai.
"My Blueberry Nights is a film starring Norah Jones and Jude Law. It also features Rachel Weisz, Natalie Portman and David Strathairn. Wong Kar Wai describes it as "a story of a woman who takes the long route instead of the short one to meet up with the man she loves."
A young woman takes a journey across the United States to resolve her questions about love. She encounters a series of offbeat characters along the way.
The movie was the opening film for the 2007 Cannes Film Festival. It is Kar Wai Wong's first feature length English-language film.
Norah Jones was the only choice for the leading role, despite her lack of prior acting experience actually it was her film debut.
