365 Movies Day #219 "Happy Accidents"

Another break from the chain of horror and action, this is a love story...but not your typical love story. Marisa Tomei (who is smoking hot btw), plays Ruby. She's had a string of bad relationships and is looking for Mr. Right. When she finds him in the form of Vincent D'Onofrio, everything is perfect, except for the fact that he believes he is a time traveler from the future.

Tomei has been in everything. She got her start on "Toxic Avenger" back in 1984, and has since worked on "Four Rooms", "My Cousin Vinnie" and "The Wrestler" among others. D'Onofrio is the original THOR ("Adventures in Babysitting"), not to mention his roles on "Full Metal Jacket", "Men in Black", "Strange Days", "KILL THE IRISHMAN" and "Law and Order: Criminal Intent". The film also features Holland Taylor (Charlie Sheen's mom on "Two and a Half Men" and Sean Gullette ("Pi", "Requiem for a Dream").

The film was directed by Brad Anderson (Holland Taylor's nephew), who went on to direct "Transsiberian" and several episodes of "Fringe". He is also no stranger to the blog! I've covered two of his films already in the form of "SESSION 9" and who can forget his Christian Bale flick "THE MACHINIST"?

  1. One of my most favorite Vincent D'Onofrio movies. I wish he would do more comedy. I hopeful for his new one Supreme Ruler which will start filming this fall.
