This movie just shot up pretty high on my "must-see" list. The Counselor is the first original screenplay by Cormac McCarthy, the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Road and No Country for Old Men. Riddley Scott directs Michael Fassbender, Penélope Cruz, Cameron Diaz, Javier Bardem, and Brad Pitt in a twisted tale of a lawyer with some shady business dealings. Things get dark very, very fast.
John Leguizamo, Goran Visnjic, Natalie Dormer of Game of Thrones-fame and Rosie Perez also make appearences. Can I note how nice it is to see Penélope Cruz and Cameron Diaz finally together in a movie, nearly 12 years after Vanilla Sky came out? It's nice. Hits theaters October 25.
