Synopsis


Romance & Cigarettes
Actor and filmmaker John Turturro wrote and directed this emotionally resonant blend of music and drama. Nick Murder (James Gandolfini) is an ironworker who has been married for years to Kitty (Susan Sarandon), who works as a seamstress and is the mother of Nick's three daughters. While Nick loves his wife, his head is turned by Tula (Kate Winslet), a sexy salesgirl at a lingerie shop, and soon they're having a passionate affair. When Kitty finds out about Nick's infidelity, she becomes enraged and kicks him out of the house, forcing him to decide what he really wants out of life and what is most important to him. Along the way, many of the characters in the film periodically turn to their favorite songs to explain and amplify their emotions, lip-synching along with the original recordings. Romance & Cigarettes also stars Steve Buscemi, Mandy Moore, Christopher Walken, Eddie Izzard, and Elaine Stritch. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

    Better than it's given credit for

    This hilarious semi-musical tells the story of a dysfunctional family which seems to be more realistic than fictional. Susan Sarandon is a gem, as she is in any film. The movie is definitely a must see for those who are into the off-beat cinematics of English film. Even those who aren't can find a great reason to see this fantastic film. It was worth the long wait for it to come out on DVD in the US.
