February 18, 2013. We finally got the first trailer for the Sandra Nettelbeck-directed film where we got our first listen to Caine's odd American accent. Not sure where in the states he's supposed to be from but be that as it may ...
July 29, 2013. We got another trailer last summer and the promise of a US release date in October. I don't know about you but if Mr. Morgan's Last Love was actually released in US theaters, I missed it. And I live here in movie country where we have access to a wide variety of independent films. If I missed it I'm betting a bunch of you did as well.
Did you happen to notice the tag line "It's never too late to love life again" which makes it clear that the friendship between Caine's character and the much younger woman is platonic rather than romantic, a relief if you were weirded out by the idea of Alfred making out with a woman young enough to date Bruce Wayne.
I'm going to try to get to it in the next few days; curious to hear what you think of it as well. I haven't checked the reviews but having heard so little about it they can't be raves. There is that strange American accent of Caine's to contend with! On the other hand I can promise some beautiful wide French boulevards and to-die-for Parisian apartments with glorious high ceilings. Perhaps that, along with a score by the acclaimed Hans Zimmer, is enough.
