    Upcoming Movie - White Oleander

    Opens October 11th



    Starring

    Robin Wright Penn, Michelle Pfeiffer, Rene Zellweger, Noah Wyle
    Alison Lohman, Billy Connelly

    From tribute.ca

    Oleander can be poisonous...

    So can a mother's love.

    White Oleander tells the unforgettable story of Astrid, a girl whose odyssey through a series of Los Angeles foster homes - each its own universe with its own laws, its own dangers, its own hard lessons to be learned - becomes a redeeming journey of self-discovery. Based on the acclaimed best-selling novel by Janet Fitch, White Oleander follows a young woman's journey through hardship and loss to maturity, joy and true independence.

    After her uncompromising but seductive mother Ingrid (Pfeiffer) kills her boyfriend for abandoning her, fifteen-year-old Astrid (Lohman) witnesses her mother's arrest. It's an event that will change the course of both their lives.

    Suddenly, young Astrid is on her own.

    Shuttled through a series of foster homes, Astrid struggles to master the techniques she needs if she's to survive the unyielding and often harsh world she's thrust into. Astrid tries desperately to forge her own identity within her ever-changing environment. From behind bars, Ingrid's powerful influence is the only constant in Astrid's life. For good, and for bad...

    In the three years that mark her passage from child to adult, Astrid must learn the value of independence and courage, rage and forgiveness, love and survival, to earn her freedom from the past.

    The book that this movie was adapted from was featured on Oprah's book club.

    This movie sounds as though it could be really good, if made, written and acted well. (I guess that's most movies eh?)
    At this moment in time, I am not in the mood for a thought provoking, tear jerker though!

    i'm actually on page 78 of the book... and loving it.

    and with the actresses they've cast for the movie... i think this could be great. i'm a HUGE robin wright penn fan and i think they've nailed the face of ingrid with michelle pfeiffer... perfect eyes for the part. i don't know allison lohman, but love to see new talent. especially young talent.

    i'm really looking forward to this movie.

    I haven't read the book, but I'll probably see it.
    I do find Rene Zellwegger a little hard to take though so that'll be a drawback.

    I think this movie looks very good...and very deep. It's nice to see a movie like this every once in a while.

    I adore Renee... she was fabulous in Bridget Jones and was the only thing I remotely liked in Jerry Maguire.

    I also really like Michelle Pfeiffer.
    If you go through a lot of hammers each month, I don't think it necessarily means you're a hard worker.
    It may just mean that you have a lot to learn about proper hammer maintenance.
