Today we have the trailer for "The Woman in the Fifth" thriller, starring Ethan Hawke and Kristin Scott Thomas. It is directed by Pawel Pawlikowski and is set to hit theaters on June 15th, in limited release. Check out the trailer below.
Plot: American writer Tom Ricks (Hawke) arrives in Paris to be closer to his young daughter who is living with his estranged ex-wife. Completely broke, he accepts a job as a night guard for a local crime boss. Stationed in a basement office, his only task is to push a button when a bell rings. The tranquility of the night, he hopes, will help him focus on his new novel. His days become more exciting when he starts a romance with Margit (Thomas), a mysterious and elegant widow who sets strange rules to their meetings: she will only see him at her apartment in the fifth arrondissement, at 5pm sharp, twice a week and he should ask no questions about her work or her past life.
When people suddenly start dying around Tom, he begins to believe that a dark force has entered his life, punishing anyone who has recently done him wrong. After the police accuse him of murdering his neighbor, Tom tries to use his weekly visits to Margit's apartment as an alibi, only to find out that she hasn't lived at this address for the past 15 years.
What an abortion of a plot synopsis. Ethan Hawke has no BO draw either, and though he has some acting chops, the f*cker is never given much on which to exploit them. Sounds like more of the same here. Should have been him in Buried instead of Ken Doll Reynolds btw.
"WHERES MINK TO TELL ME WHAT arrondissement MEANS!?"
It's a French word for "Frenchmen are f*cking fags", and thus pretty much like every other French word.
"she will only see him at her apartment in the fifth arrondissement"
Ooooooh boy! A Parisian film based on the thrilling nature of Paris' administrative districts! WOW! It's like "Die Hard in an arrondissement"!
