Angelina Jolie’s ‘Unbroken’ to Hit Theaters in December 2014

The release date puts the film adaptation of Laura Hillenbrand’s acclaimed 2010 book in the heart of awards season.

Universal has set a Christmas Day 2014 release for World War II drama Unbroken, which marks Angelina Jolie’s second directorial effort.

The coveted release positions the film — an adaptation of Laura Hillenbrand’s acclaimed 2010 book about World War II hero Lou Zamperini — for an awards run. Ethan and Joel Coen are writing the script from previous drafts by William Nicholson and Richard LaGravenese.

Universal picked up the rights to the book in January 2011, initially for Francis Lawrence to direct. Jolie boarded the project in December.

On-the-Road-US-Poster

On the Road is finally coming to US theaters tomorrow so there is a fresh batch of reviews for the movie. To celebrate the release, I wanted to spotlight some of the great comments reviewers were making about Garrett’s performance.

The King Bulletin

This brings me to the performance of Hedlund, which is simply one of my favorite male performances of the year (and there have been a lot of great ones). Hedlund gives Dean the irresistible swagger we’ve always imagined — he talks like a country singer, woos people with his intoxicating energy, and is so confident in his physical appearance that he rarely needs to wear anything dressier than a plain-white T-shirt to get people into bed with him. But the magic of the performance — like that of the film in general — is that Hedlund’s Dean is so charismatic and full of passion that he can’t help but also be profoundly sad at the same time. Indeed, he’s quite often both of these things at the exact same time: perhaps Hedlund’s best scene in the film has him switching from talking about suicide to a four-way orgy within the blink of an eye. This is a guy who has no control over himself, and, therefore, can never get a lasting, meaningful grip on the world he lives in.

This theatrical cut of On the Road runs 124 minutes, and it’s largely unsurprising, given the film’s satisfying understanding of the source material, that an extended cut would probably be even better. When it debuted at the Cannes Film Festival earlier this year, it ran closer to 140 minutes, but was unfortunately forced into the editing room on its way to domestic distribution. The melancholy, drawn-out image that plays out over the closing credits — Hedlund’s Dean, his back to the camera, pacing drearily down some middle-of-nowhere railroad tracks — is a prime example of why I’d eagerly accept any longer version that may come our way.

Boston Globe

And the casting is very strong, especially Garrett Hedlund in the critical role of Dean Moriarty, a.k.a. Neal Cassady, the one character who lives what the others just write about. That’s not quite right: Dean can only live — skipping from city to city, apartment to apartment, woman to woman — while his friends have to turn it into art. That’s why they idolize him: Dean’s life is his art. Kerouac knew there’d be a price to pay for that, and if his book sees the downside of Being Dean with piercing romanticism, the movie just sees it clearly.

Anyway, Hedlund — last seen in “Tron: Legacy,” poor thing — is a tremendous Dean, confident, impulsive, sexy, rootless. Even his mistakes seem like great ideas at the time. (It helps if you’re a guy.) The others, also well cast, are lesser planets to his Sun.
