Only respect for Vincent D’Onofrio!

A-Movie-Z.com | 10.4.10

The Whole Wide World
In Texas in the 1930s, young school teacher Novalyne Price meets a handsome, eccentric and interesting young man named Robert Howard. He’s a successful writer of the pulp stories of ‘Conan the Barbarian’; she’s an aspiring author. A friendship develops into a sort of courtship. Based on a memoir by Novalyne Price. Stars Academy Award® nominee Vincent D’Onofrio and Renée Zellweger (Chicago).Director Dan Ireland shows a talent for authenticity with this heartbreaking love story based on Novalyne Price’s 1988 account of her prickly romance with 1930s pulp-fiction writer Robert E. Howard, the creator of Conan the Barbarian. She was a schoolteacher in a small Texas town; he was the odd-ball writer who lived at home and created comic-book characters that were sexier and more violent than was considered decent by the locals. Renée Zellweger’s performance is a gem of sweet unconventionality matched by Vincent D’Onofrio’s powerful show of eccentricity and increasing mental illness. Though smart and feisty, this leaves us wishing the filmmakers had dug deeper into Howard’s unusual relationship with his manipulative mother. –Rochelle O’Gorman


The Narrows
Brooklyn native Mike Manadoro (Kevin Zegers, Transamerica, Dawn of the Dead) has a dream-but he’s got to risk his life to make it come true. To afford tuition at a prestigious Manhattan university, Mike takes a job with the local mob boss (Titus Welliver, Gone Baby Gone, TV’s Deadwood). But as his assignments grow more dangerous, he learns the true meaning of loyalty when he gets some help from a very unlikely source. Featuring Vincent D’Onofrio (Law & Order: Criminal Intent) and Sophia Bush (One Tree Hill), THE NARROWS is a gritty, real-life portrait of a young man torn between his traditional Italian-American neighborhood and the elite Manhattan world just across the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge.
