| I Don't Like Woody Allen, but......
I loved this. A story of a fictional character, portrayed as documentary, the viewer is drawn in, particularly by the believable performances from all the cast, Samantha Morton and Sean Penn in particular. They both deserved the nominations they received for these roles. Morton especially since she had no words, only expressions, to carry meaning, and she succeeds.

In addition, if you like jazz, there is simply some fantastic music to be heard. Apparently Penn had never played guitar before this movie, and while it is unlikely that he was able to play to this standard, he nevertheless carries off miming very well.

Great music, great film. 10/10
