keira knightley and jude law star in this newest remake of leo tolstoy's grand novel. from the look of this trailer it looks scrumptious. not a word i often use. it has high oscar aspirations going forward. time will tell. i love ms knightley on screen and hope high for her. mr law always seems to impress me.

'Evita' Gets BluRay Treatment

new this week to bluray

the critics were not kind. the audiences seemed to follow their lead. i totally disagree. 'evita' was a fine film musical. it was beautifuuly filmed and scored. madonna did her best work to date on film, actually it is her only good work on film. that aside, you should rent or buy this in bluray. it is a musical feast. available at amazon (see right sidebar).
