David, has just failed his university examinations and has one year to re-write them. Ruben, his father, a pragmatic and successful businessman, has been paying for David's education, the pursuit of which he considers a waste of time. Ruben wants David to work and make himself useful and he strikes a deal with him: David can stay and study for his exams at Ruben's house in La Perrera, a coastal resort town, while he builds a house for himself. And so, a year-long adventure starts for David, an urban intellectual, in the isolated La Perrera and among its off-season residents who include nearly as many dogs as men, where the only women are either pregnant or prostitutes, and where no one wants to work and things are done out of friendship more than anything else.

I didn't care for the casting much: Jessica Alba as the sexy schemer, Terrence Howard as the sympathetic friend yet murderer, and Hayden Christensen as Clay Beresford, the young, rich lead. He's tedious and uninteresting, and I never bought off on him at all.

It's rare these days to find a film with a satisfying ending - one which, although you see it coming, you happily watch it correlate with your expectations as it unfolds. The contrast between an artistic youth spent in Paris and a family life in suburbia just treads the line between intriguing drama and clich. My knowledge of the film only covers watching the final piece but it seems somewhat autobiographical with insights that could only have come from experience and that is a very enjoyable thing to see. Christian Bale plays his part wonderfully. The trick being to emote whats necessary to make us care but not saturate the screen with squishy emotion every 5 minutes. A quaint little film specific to time and place but very refreshing in an age of Hollywood Blockbuster domination.

Peter A (gb) wrote: I'm divided about The Conspirator. It's not a bad movie by any means, but I'm not about to rush out and own the DVD. I wasn't that in love with it. I'm not big into courtroom dramas anyway, so that probably influenced my approach to the film.But the acting's good. I liked James McAvoy's character. Kevin Kline strayed out of his element and performed Edwin Stanton admirably. Robin Wright was also pretty good, but wooden, bland, nearly expresionless performances are par for the course for her.Overall, I'd describe the movie as stuffy. It aims so righteously to be historically accurate and serious that it forgets to also be entertaining. Being accurate is admirable, I respect that. It's just too bad some of the entertainment is sacrificed. At least they didn't give The Conspirator a Hollywood ending and totally change the story, something like, oh...say The Natural.This is a decent movie. Well-made and well-acted. It just plays out so solemnly, and with the old cliche of a crusading lawyer willing to sacrifice everything in order to uphold justice and save his client, even as the other side plays fast-and-loose with the law. It's not a movie I'll be in a hurry to watch again soon.
