FIRST LOOK: Woody’s ‘Match Point’ and Cruz in ‘Chromophobia’

ON

With the Cannes Film Festival beginning in only one day we are still getting early looks at films without distribution and now we get a couple that I am sure you are going to be interested in.

First up is Woody Allen‘s hush, hush flick Match Point starring a huge list of names including Scarlett Johansson, Emily Mortimer, Jonathan Rhys-Meyers, Brian Cox, Matthew Goode, James Nesbitt, Eddie Marsan and Woody of course. Along with three pics we have also learned the plot line, which is directly below:

MATCH POINT is a drama about a young man’s rise in society and the terrible consequences of his ambition. The protagonist is torn between two women, and finding no way out, resorts to extreme action. The actors are all English and it is set amongst the English upper class with Scarlett Johansson playing the beautiful American girl who comes between Jonathan Rhys Meyers and his wife Emily Mortimer. Matthew Goode is Emily’s wealthy brother who initiates the tragic events.

Secondly, we have six new pics and a plotline as well for the celebrity packed picture Chromophobia. The film stars Ralph Fiennes, Kristin Scott Thomas, Rhys Ifans, Ian Holm, Ben Chaplin, Damian Lewis and Penélope Cruz in a Martha Fiennes directed film.

To check out the pics and read the detailed plotline check it out below, but to browse the pics click here or the teaser pic above.

What do you do when your wife Iona Aylesbury (Kristin Scott Thomas) can’t tell the difference between a shrink and a shop, your eight year old son Orlando may have serious psychological problems, while his gay godfather Stephen (Ralph Fiennes) lies half beaten to death in an hospital?

Your boss is drawing you into a scam which could cost you your career, your father Edward Aylesbury expects more of you than you feel you can deliver and your stepmother Penelope’s (Harriet Walter) bond with her dogs is your best role model of a loving relationship. And what could the secrets of streetwalker Gloria (Penelope Cruz) that her social worker Colin (Rhys Ifans) is digging up possibly have to do with you? Every family has secrets it hides behind the walls of its home – these are the dilemma and secrets of Marcus Aylesbury (Damian Lewis).

When Marcus’s old “friend” Trent (Ben Chaplin), an intelligent investigative journalist, gets wind of a story that might make him a media star the good old virtues of honesty, loyalty and friendship are sacrified to the new morality of success and celebrity. Pushed by his powerhouse editor, Trent is forced to bend his ideals of using journalism to make a difference – and instead focuses on writing “sexy stories that sell”. This darkly comedic drama relentlessly pulls these characters into situations which threaten their stable place in a society where privilege and birth are no longer powerful enough to protect the fortunate few, and where the American values of money, beauty and success have become the cornerstones of contemporary London life.
