Movie Info

Director Carlo Gabriel Nero brings actor/playwright Wallace Shawn's controversial study of the growing chasm between the first and third world from stage to screen with this tale of a privileged woman whose reality suddenly suffers a profound shift. A bourgeois woman awakens suffering from a particularly intense fever and trapped in an unidentified third-world country. Later, upon venturing out into her war-torn surroundings, the once-wealthy woman is forced to contend with such unfamiliar issues as luxury, culpability, and revolution. Angelina Jolie, Joely Richardson, and Michael Moore co-star in a drama that employs animation and thought-provoking first-person monologues to explore the concept of bourgeois privilege.

Audience Reviews for The Fever

An 83-min monologue play that doesn't necessarily translate to screen with the same impact. The ideas presented stir up enough food for thought, and the ice-cream guilt trip was effective, but it's a pity that the whole film doesn't end up making a firm statement. Good acting from Redgrave though.

Couldn't help it, "Jolie" made me realize was so many of us look up to her, and believed in her acting abilities.
