Closer, (2004), (DVD), directed by Mike Nichols starring Julia Roberts (Pretty Woman (1990), Erin Brockovich (2000), Ocean’s Eleven and Twelve (2001, 2004), Charlie Wilson’s War (2007), Eat Pray Love (2010) and others), Jude Law (The Talented Mr. Ripley (1999), Cold Mountain (2003), My Blueberry Nights (2007)), Natalie Portman (My Blueberry Nights (2007), Black Swan (2010, for which Portman won the Academy Award, the Golden Globe Award, the Screen Actors Guild Award, and the BAFTA Award for her lead performance), Clive Owen (The Bourne Identity (2002), Children of Men (2006), The Killer Elite (2011, an upcoming action film with Jason Statham and Robert De Niro)).  In this romantic drama loosely based on Mozart’s opera Cosi fan tutte, Mike Nichols (The Graduate (1967), Carnal Knowledge (1971), Charlie Wilson’s War (2007), and others) has assembled an articulate group of attractive actors with the end result being, as Kenneth Turran of the Los Angeles Times wrote, “a bunch of sad strangers photographed beautifully”.  Nevertheless, for their performances in Closer, Clive Owen did win both a BAFTA and Golden Globe for Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role, and Natalie Portman, a Golden Globe for Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role.  (PR)

We recommend that you buy your DVDs.  Have a wonderful personal film library..
