The Pocahontas actress surprised me too, very nice for her first role in a major movie. Very, very nice for a historical drama, although it gets a bit implausible at times if you know even the slightest bit of how it actually transpired.

Match Point. Awesome, just awesome. Woody Allen is clearly back in the game, and I hope his next movies will be as good as this one. The acting was very good as well, so much so that I very much hated Jonathan Rhys Meyers from early on in the movie
All agreed.

By the way, I saw Capote... very interesting. Overdone, perhaps, but in a good way.
...It's down there somewhere. Let me have another look.
