Plot: A chronicle of a young man's rise to power in Paris via his manipulation of the city's most influential and wealthy women.
Cast: Robert Pattinson (Twilight), Uma Thurman, Kristin Scott Thomas, Christina Ricci, Natalia Tena (Tonks in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2).
Verdict: Pattinson perceived as a sex object? *gasp* Never! Despite the amount of girls who fall at his feet, Pattinson has yet to garner any true recognition for his work as an actor. I think the reason is because many critics mock the melodramatic acting that the Twilight saga requires, caked in longing and desire. This film reverberates those elements as well on a more mature level. And I think it's because of its older audience (and the fact that it's not a fantasy love story about vampires) that his character expresses his emotions more intensely. Critics won't find a robotic, non-emotive Pattinson in this film. But I think by the end of it, we'll all be wondering whether or not we prefer the other version.
Release Date: October 19
