Laws of Attraction, with Pierce Brosnan, Julianne Moore and Frances Fisher (the uptight mom in Titanic) is a comedy about the attraction of opposities and the worth of working hard to maintain a marriage. Opens April 30th.
It’s not a theological treatise on matrimony but has more of a Tracy-Hepburn thing going with some contemporary accouterments (it is implied that they do sleep together once before their “marriage”) – yet these things offer mature folk issues to talk about with others rather than detract from the film.
It is pretty funny – light fare for Mothers Day. (Note the product placement with junk food – I read this as the filmmakers way fo relating to the audience – wishful thnking women in their 40’s-50’s … It’s so over-the-top though it’s funny.) Too much alcohol, too.
(I got to interview Brosnan, Moore and Fisher for a Faith & Values segment – 5 minutes – on the Hallmark Channel, April 18th. Watch for it just before the Catholic Mass at Notre Dame. They were great interviews – too bad each media outlet only had 5 minutes!!!)
