THE BRAVE ONE
DIR. Neil Jordan
Jodie Foster, Terrence Howard, Naveen Andrews, Mary Steenburgen, Jane Adams
Release date: September 14, 2007
Summer is nearly over, September has arrived and that can only mean one thing. Movies with Oscar potential officially start rolling in. And who better to kick off the season than two-time Oscar winner Jodie Foster? Her new film 'The Brave One' gives Foster her most baity role since 'Nell', starring as a woman controlled by her tragic past, who embarks on a search for justice as a means out.
Director Neil Jordan is very hit or miss, but when he's good ('The Crying Game'), he's good. Oscar nominees Terrence Howard and Mary Steenburgen, as well as Naveen Andrews ('Lost') and Jane Adams round out the supporting cast. But this one is certainly all about Jodie.
