The Baroness and the Pig is the reason I missed my 9:30pm bus and had to sit in South Station for TWO HOURS.
This horrible dreck of a film stars Patricia Clarkson as a Baroness, who is a native of Philadelphia.
Her husband (Colm Feore) is the uptight Baron.
Once you hear the plot and the movie starts, you know EXACTLY where it's going.
Action after action, everything...
credit is due for the fact that the film looks lovely, as it was shot in High Definition.
And to Caroline Dhavernas, who's meek 'Pig' Emily is the only shining light in this tired piece of crap.
Pig and Runt. Runt and Pig.
Two best friends, a boy Pig (Cillan Murphy) and a girl Runt (Elaine Cassidy), who have the same exact birthday and have lived next door since birth.
The film has a good opening and consistantly interesting.
Although, it's hard to tell wether Cillian Murphy was OVERacting or just fufilling the madness his character inhibits.
Either way, the film slightly falters in overblowing the actions of Pig towards Runt's betrayals with other boys.
The BEST scene in the film is when Pig realizes after kissing Runt that he loves her.
He describes what he wants to do with her ... exhuding saddness towards the obvious doom coming from their love all alone in his room ... and it nearly made me cry.
