The American Preview/Synopsis

The American Sept. 1

Directed by Anton Corbijn ( Control )Starring George Clooney, Thekla Reuten, Bruce Altman, Isira Bjorkland, Paola Bonacelli and Violante Placido. Written by Rowan Joffe ( 28 Weeks Later ) Cinematography by Martin Ruhe ( Harry Brown, The Countess ) Editing by Andrew Hulme ( Wicker Park, The Lucky Number Slevin ) Original Score by German composer/musician Herbert Cronemeyer.

Jack ( Clooney ) is a master assassin. When a job in Sweden ends more harshly than expected, he vows to his contact, Larry, that his next assignment will be his last. Jack reports to the Italian countryside, where he holes up in a small town and relishes being away from death for a spell. The assignment, as specified by a Belgian woman, Mathilde, is in the offing as a weapon is constructed. Surprising himself, Jack seeks out the friendship of local priest Father Benedetto and pursues romance with local woman Clara. But by stepping out of the shadows, Jack may be tempting fate.

Rated R for violence, sexual content and nudity.

Oscar chances ? Possible for Clooney in lead actor but he'll really have to be lights out good, because he was nominated last year and it's an extremely rare occurrence where an actor get recieves Oscar nominations two years in a row. Also screenplay could have a chance as well.

Started to really pay attention to film ( movies ) what was going on in front of the camera, but more interestingly, behind it as well at about as far back as age 10. Motion pictures ( when good ) are a fascinating medium. All the work and prep that goes into filmmaking. It's an amazing process !
