Junebug

If you are anything like me, you wonder what Amy Adams is doing all over the place. Seems like she is in everything. [I looked her up and sure enough she is one busy little bee. Maybe I exaggerate, but Julie & Julia (2009) Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian (2009) Doubt (2008/I) Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day (2008) Sunshine Cleaning (2008) Charlie Wilson’s War (2007) Enchanted (2007) ain’t too shabby] She’s been at it since 1999, but apparently the film that kicked her into high gear was Junebug. It was shot in NC, my home state and was on the “most popular” list for people from around these parts on Netflix. She got her first Academy Award nomination for her supporting role in it. So I thought I’d give it a go. Perhaps she stood out because the film is so horrible. She really is the only thing worth seeing it for. And I would not suggest you go out of your way. The story is nearly non-existent. The clichés pummel you senseless. And the camera work and pacing could put me, a confirmed insomniac, to sleep.
