The Next Three Days Preview/Synopsis

November 19

Directed by Paul Haggis ( Crash, In The Valley Of Elah ) Starring Russell Crowe, Elizabeth Banks, Brian Dennehy, Olivia Wilde, Daniel Stern and a cameo by Liam Neeson. Written by Haggis, cinematography by Stephane Fontaine ( What Just Happened ) editing by Jo Francis ( In The Valley Of Elah ) original music by Oscar nominees Danny Elfman ( Milk, Good Will Hunting ) and Alberto Iglesias ( The Kite Runner, The Constant Gardener )

Life seems perfect for John Brennan ( Crowe ) until his wife, Lara ( Banks ), is arrested for a gruesome murder she says she didn't commit. Three years into her sentence, John is struggling to hold his family together, raising their son and teaching at college while he pursues every means available to prove her innocence. With the rejection of their final appeal, Lara becomes suicidal and John decides there is only one possible, bearable solution: to break his wife out of prison. Refusing to be deterred by impossible odds or his own inexperience, John devises an elaborate escape plot and plunges into a dangerous and unfamiliar world, ultimately risking everything for the woman he loves.

Rated PG-13 for violence, drug material, language and some sexuality.

Oscar chances ? I'm not really seeing any here. It's not getting very good overall approval rating either.

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 !
