Synopsis
Legendary filmmaker Wong Kar-Wai directs Jude Law, Natalie Portman, Rachel Weisz, and Norah Jones in his first English-language feature film -- a romantic road movie detailing the cross-country journey of a woman who sets off across the United States in hopes of mending her broken heart. Elizabeth (Jones) has just been through a particularly nasty breakup, and now she's ready to leave her friends and memories behind as she chases her dreams across the country. In order to support herself on her journey, Elizabeth picks up a series of waitress jobs along the way. As Elizabeth crosses paths with a series of lost souls whose yearnings are even greater than her own -- including a troubled cop (David Strathairn), his estranged wife (Rachel Weisz), and an embittered gambler (Natalie Portman) -- their emotional turmoil ultimately helps her gain a greater understanding of her own problems. ~ Jason Buchanan, All Movie Guide

If you're a Kar Wai Wong fan (although didn't most of us first know him as Wong Kar Wai?), you're not going to want to miss MY BLUEBERRY NIGHTS. It's not up to his best, but it's certainly worth seeing and offers two wonderful performances from David Strathairn and Natalie Portman--and perfectly good ones from the rest of the cast (even Norah Jones does OK, though she's not an actress quite yet).

You'll get gorgeous, colorful (though unreal-looking) visuals and lots of mood, missed connections and lost loves. Maybe because Wong has set this one in the USA (spoiler ahead), he manages a rare happy ending (for two in his cast, at least). Was he thinking "Gosh, a happy ending is surely what those Americans do need!" Who knows? Just enjoy.
