Jude Law straps on a vigorous Southern accent to play author Thomas Wolfe and another Brit (Colin Firth) goes Yankee as his book editor Maxwell Perkins. This story looks at the working relationship that becomes a friendship. Law gives a fervent, outgoing performance and Firth plays it laid back. Even with their sometimes volatile relationship, this film never rises above a quiet energy. All of the actors are good, but the drama never inspires and the dialogue isn’t especially smart. It might be interesting for literary types, but as drama it’s a bit of a snooze. Interestingly, 6 of the main characters (all of whom are supposed to Americans) are either played by Brits or Aussies. (Criterion Cinemas only)
