A Promise
He’s fallen out of favor a bit in the last few years, but there was a time when Patrice Leconte was one of the most popular foreign filmmakers in the U.S. While he was never a favorite with the hipper critics, over the 1990s and early 2000s, films like “Ridicule,” “ The Girl On The Bridge,” “The Man On The Train” and “Intimate Strangers” became staples on the festival circuit, won BAFTAs and Cesars, and became sizeable arthouse hits.

Actress Rebecca Hall seems to have been quite underrated by Hollywood’s eye for some time now, even after giving a number of fine performances in well-respected films like Woody Allen’s “Vicky Christina Barcelona” and Ben Affleck’s 2010 directorial effort “The Town” – neither of which she really seemed to get a ton of credit for. Well, she’s looking to earn a serious profile upgrade after being cast in the Shane Black-directed “Iron Man 3,” and now has another interesting prospect on her slate of upcoming films.
