Straw Dogs – September 16, 2011
Starring: Alexander Skarsgard, James Marsden, Kate Bosworth, James Woods
Written and directed by: Rod Lurie
“L.A. screenwriter David Sumner relocates with his wife to her hometown in the deep South. There, while tensions build between them, a brewing conflict with locals becomes a threat to them both.” – IMDB
My thoughts: With the exception of the willowy Kate Bosworth, this movie was practically made for me. A thriller starring (a very aggressive) Alexander Skarsgard and a geeked-out James Marsden? How could I say no? Anyone, the movie looks like it will be full of tension and probably some hard to watch scenes (I’m 97% there is at least one rape scene which is always hard to stomach.) I’ll definitely be watching the original from 1971, which stars Dustin Hoffman, before watching this one.
