Laws of Attraction

Laws of Attraction, with Pierce Brosnan, Julianne Moore and Frances Fisher (the uptight mom in Titanic) is a comedy about the attraction of opposities and the worth of working hard to maintain a marriage. Opens April 30th.

It's not a theological treatise on matrimony but has more of a Tracy-Hepburn thing going with some contemporary accouterments (it is implied that they do sleep together once before their "marriage") - yet these things offer mature folk issues to talk about with others rather than detract from the film.

It is pretty funny - light fare for Mothers Day. (Note the product placement with junk food - I read this as the filmmakers way fo relating to the audience - wishful thnking women in their 40's-50's ... It's so over-the-top though it's funny.) Too much alcohol, too.

(I got to interview Brosnan, Moore and Fisher for a Faith & Values segment - 5 minutes - on the Hallmark Channel, April 18th. Watch for it just before the Catholic Mass at Notre Dame. They were great interviews - too bad each media outlet only had 5 minutes!!!)
