Movie Review: The American 4/5*

After a long summer hiatus, we found ourselves at the movies again. We saw the new George Clooney movie (my “other” movie-star-boyfriend) called The American. It takes place mainly in Italy in a picturesque medieval town. Clooney is a spy/assassin type guy who is growing weary of the work. He meets a hooker with a heart of gold, and considers retirement. The love interest role is played by Violetta Placido, a lovely portrayal and just right for the movie. No other well-known actors are in it but it was really good. I enjoyed it, and expect Clooney to get another Academy Award nomination since he has reached that point in his career.

Other movies coming up this holiday season seem good too, so get out there and go to the movies again. It’s fun.
