Set in the diamond district of New York City, Howard Ratner, a jewelry store owner and dealer to the rich and famous, must find a way to pay his debts when his merchandise is taken from one of his top sellers and girlfriend.
Years after walking away from her past as a young private eye, Veronica Mars gets pulled back to her hometown, just in time for her high school reunion, in order to help her old flame Logan Echolls, who's embroiled in a murder mystery.
American security guard, Richard Jewell, heroically saves thousands of lives from an exploding bomb at the 1996 Olympics, but is unjustly vilified by journalists and the press who falsely report that he was a terrorist.
This movie is well worth watching. In fact, it is worth watching more than once. It is layered and thought provoking, on top of being downright entertaining. It makes you think about the choices you make in life.
Even though I am not in any way a hip-hop fan, I found the music to be great! What a talent. I especially liked the dance sequence at the bus stop.
The movie reminded me, in some ways, of Dancer in the Dark. The way that a musical is combined with a more serious theme and that it all works is amazing to me. I used to think of musicals as fluff like Mary Poppins or Cats, but no more.
I will definitely watch this movie more than once. I would love to have the printed lyrics to the songs, but since I don't, I guess I will just watch and listen again and enjoy it every time!
