Happy Canada Day! In honor of all things Canadian, I watched a Ryan Reynold's (My fav Canadian actor dejour) film last night on DVD called Nines. It was cool and quirky. If you like movies where you spend the entire film puzzling out what is up, you'll like this film. (Think The Sixth Sense.) There are clues throughout linking the three parts of the story together. In the first part, he plays a crazed playboy actor on house arrest. In the second part, he plays a gay television writer desperate to have his pilot picked up and in the final part he plays a loving husband/father who disappears in the woods with a stranger. Throughout runs the central theme of discovering who he really is and what it all means. A theme every one of us can relate, too. Cheers!
