Movie Review ~ Julia

Julia, directed by Erick Zonca, is a movie about an alcoholic woman, Julia, Tilda Swinton, in a destructive spiral. The movie doesn't glamorize alcoholism and parting. Julia is fired from her job and kidnaps a boy Tom, Aidan Gould, for ransom money. As much trouble Julia gets into she somehow manages to get out of it. The movie was very long, 144 minutes, and very depressing, but wonderfully acted by Tilda Swinton, Aidan Gould, Saul Rubinek, and Kate del Castillo.

Julia doesn't have a release date in the USA, but will be released in the UK December 5, 2008
