    Synopsis


    Third Person
    Oscar-winner Paul Haggis (Crash) writes and directs this romantic drama that alternates between three tales of intrigue unfolding simultaneously in New York, Paris, and Rome. Pulitzer Prize-winning author Michael (Liam Neeson) is still reeling from the recent separation from his wife Elaine (Kim Basinger) when he retreats to a Paris hotel room to finish his latest novel. As Michael searches for inspiration, his fiery affair with smoldering journalist and aspiring writer Anna (Olivia Wilde) awakens an intense passion deep within him. Meanwhile, in Rome, unscrupulous American businessman Scott (Adrien Brody) ducks into a place called the Café Americano searching for a taste of home. There he encounters captivating Roma beauty Monika (Moran Atias), who claims to have just lost the ransom she intended to pay her daughter's kidnappers. Smitten and sympathetic, Scott agrees to join her in traveling to a dangerous region of southern Italy, only to realize along the way that he may have fallen victim to an intricate con. As Scott ventures toward an uncertain fate in an unfamiliar country, former soap-opera starlet Julia (Mila Kunis) fights her prolific, ex-husband artist Rick (James Franco) for custody of their six-year-old son in New York City. It seems like a losing battle until Julia's lawyer Theresa (Maria Bello) convinces the court to give her desperate client one last chance to prove she's a fit mother. Now as Julia finds herself on the other side of the glamorous life she once enjoyed, her husband's new girlfriend Sam (Loan Chabanol) watches the situation play out with a heavy heart. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      Great actors, confusing story

      I borrowed this movie from the library and then bought it because I wanted to see it again to figure more of it out. Liam Neeson and Olivia Wilde were especially watch-worthy. The plot was really confusing with the story capriciously divided between different times, venues, and actors standing in for each other in the main story. An indie flic somewhat reminiscent of old Fellini movies. I'd give a grudging recommendation to art film buffs. Still, worth watching for a nudie scene with the very beautiful Ms. Wilde.

      This is one of those films that you're not sure where it's going or if there is a point to any of it, but, by the time the credits roll, it all comes together. Some people may not have the patience for it (it's a long movie at 147 minutes) but if you like good dramas, it's worth it. Picture and sound quality are great. Good supplements include audio commentary and q&a with the writer/director Paul Haggis (he also did Crash), making of.

      Third Person tells three stories of love, passion, trust and betrayal. The tales play out in New York, Paris and Rome through three couples who appear to have nothing related, but share deep commonalities: lovers and estranged spouses, children lost and found. Third Person is a mystery, a puzzle in which the truth is revealed in glimpses, clues are caught by the corner of the eye and nothing is truly what it seems.

      Liam Neeson, Olivia Wilde, James Franco, Adrian Brody, Mila Kunis, Kim Bassinger, and Maria Bello, quite a cast! Plot, sub plots, twists and turns, with a "DARK", realistic conclusion. Olivia Wilde at her best, Maria Bello is real and provides the only "Happy Ending" to the movie. Mila Kunis should get an award for best supporting actress.

      You're either going to love it or hate it. The movie has several interwoven / related storylines that may not seem to resolve themselves to a casual "watcher." However, to the "viewer," I say let the movie soak in for a bit, or even take a second look and get ready for some stimulating conversation. Get it on sale.

      If you are a fan of movies that get you thinking then you will enjoy this film. If you like films like Inception and The words (yes, 2 different films but they both keep your attention throughout) then you are sure to enjoy this film. Added bonus, Olivia Wilde is in it!

      I was initially attracted to this film by its two male stars, but I had no idea what I was getting myself into. I don't want to spoil the experience by giving away the details, but I will advise any viewer to pay attention. This IS a movie to watch!

      Starts off like seemingly normal story but soon gives you clues things aren't the way you might think. Very cleverly crafted, though, and by the end you're not sure what was true all along. Not for everyone but I like films such as this.
