The book, Reservation Road, has now become a film. What a cast! Here are the actors who have been drawn to this new independent
film, in the ensemble:
Joaquin Phoenix, as Ethan Learner
Jennifer Connolly, as Grace Learner
Mark Ruffalo, as Dwight Arno
Mira Sorvino, as Ruth Wheldon
In case you need a gentle reminder or two?
o Joaquin won an Oscar, playing Johnny Cash in Walk The Line. He also was in Hotel Rwanda, and its director (Terry George)
helms this film too.
o Jennifer broke out as the beleaguered wife in A Beautiful Mind, and was a challenged journalist in The Blood Diamond.
She seems to pick interesting material.
o Mark's the guy we rooted for, in Zodiac. We all wanted him to get the girl in 13 Going On 30 too. Of course, he's
a bit more troubled in this film.
o Mira has been a great character actress, and who can forget Mighty Aphrodite? Barcelona was very interesting too.
She's able to transform into many different roles.
So these are well-known, gifted actors. I think Reservation Road's worth seeing simply for the cast alone!
