Morning Glory Preview/Synopsis

November 12

Directed by Roger Michell ( Changing Lanes ) Starring Rachel McAdams, Harrison Ford, Diane Keaton, Jeff Goldblum, Patrick Wilson, Ty Burrell. Written by Aline Brosh McKenna ( The Devil Wears Prada, The Laws Of Attraction ) Cinematography by Alwin H. Kutchler ( Solitary Man, Proof ) Edited by Daniel Farrell, Nick Moore ( The Full Monty ) and Steve Weisberg ( Men In Black II )

When hard–working TV producer Becky Fuller (McAdams) is fired from a local news program, her career begins to look as bleak as her hapless love life. Stumbling into a job at "Daybreak" (the last–place national morning news show), Becky decides to revitalize the show by bringing on legendary TV anchor Mike Pomeroy (Ford). Unfortunately, Pomeroy refuses to cover morning show staples like celebrity gossip, weather, fashion and crafts – let alone work with his new co–host, Colleen Peck (Keaton), a former beauty queen and longtime morning show personality who is more than happy covering morning "news." As Mike and Colleen clash, first behind the scenes and then on the air, Becky's blossoming love affair with fellow producer, Adam Bennett (Wilson) begins to unravel – and soon Becky is struggling to save her relationship, her reputation, her job and ultimately, the show itself

Rated PG for some sexual content including dialogue, language and brief drug references. 150 min.

Oscar chances ? Probably not, but... it's a very good chance that Rachel McAdams can earn herself a Golden Globe in the Lead Actress-Musical/Comedy category. Harrison Ford could land a Globe nod in the same category 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 !
