Cassandra's Dream - Movie Synopsis & Plot

Set in contemporary London, "Cassandra's Dream" is a powerful and thrilling story about two brothers (Ewan McGregor, Colin Farrell) who are desperate to better their troubled lives. One is a chronic gambler in debt over his head, and the other is a young man in love with a beautiful actress (newcomer Hayley Atwell) he has recently met. Their lives gradually become entangled into a sinister situation with intense and unfortunate results. Written and directed by Academy Award winner Woody Allen, the film also stars Tom Wilkinson and Sally Hawkins. The score is by Philip Glass and the cinematography by Vilmos Zsigmond.

MOVIE REVIEW

Woody Allen is one of the most hit-or-miss directors working today, though critics tend to lean toward misses more often than not. I've actually enjoyed a lot of his recent works from Small Time Crooks to The Curse of the Jade Scorpion - and his serious film Match Point was my second favorite film of 2005 - but then again, he has also had movies like Hollywood Ending and Scoop to make me think twice. With his new film, Cassandra's Dream, I had high hopes as it starred two respectable actors and hints of the magic Allen achieved with Match Point. Unfortunately, it wasn't to be.
