Rate-A-Trailer: Natalie Portman in The Other Woman
Thanks to Black Swan, 2010 has been a big year for Natalie Portman, and 2011 looks to be even more busy with major roles in Your Highness opposite James Franco and Danny McBride, and opposite Chris Hemsworth in the Kenneth Branagh’s adaptation of Thor. We’re not really sure how The Other Woman — a film about a homewrecker who has a difficult time with her stepson that is based on Ayelet Waldman’s 2006 novel Love and Other Impossible Pursuits — fits into the picture, but the fact that it’s getting a VOD release by IFC on January 1, and a limited theatrical release on February 4, would indicate that this won’t be one of the films we remember — or even see. Plus, the project has been kicking around for two years now, which is never a good sign. We think that this looks like another Where the Heart Is for Portman — she’ll shine, but ultimately the film will fall flat — which means that we’ll just wait a few years and catch it for free on Lifetime.
