1444 - Easy
Okay, so Netflix has me on this indie kick. This is an interesting film. It's full of these little melodramatic nuggets that should ruin the film, but for some reason they don't. I think the reason is the lead Marguerite Moreau - she's fantastic. She's the kind of person who you probably couldn't hate if you tried. Despite some of the things going on with her, the character she plays, Jamie, is a pretty strong one. You fall in love with her instantly, and Moreau has one of those smiles that could be dangerous as hell - and it is. She is an immense discovery and the highlight of this film. I'm actually surprised that we haven't seen more of her. It's not really an amazing film by any means but it's worth checking out for Moreau's performance at the very least. Loved her.
