Josh Hartnett's latest film, August, is a drama about the dot.com era. Josh and Adam Scott (Tell Me You Love Me) star as brothers whose Internet start-up, Landshark, is as hot as can be one minute, and the next... well, you know how it goes. Their stock price plunges and their world is about to go up in smoke.
When I first heard about this movie, I got excited. I obviously work in the online world, so to me, a story about my business is interesting. Plus, most ladies enjoy the look of Josh Hartnett, so seeing him on the big screen is always an added benefit.
Aside from Mr. Hartnett, the cast of August has some other semi-big names attached to it as well. I was very happy to see Adam Scott in it, as I absolutely love him in HBO's Tell Me You Love Me (if you haven't seen it, you must!). Robin Tunney (The Craft, Prison Break) and Emmanuelle Chriqui (Entourage, You Don't Mess with the Zohan) also have slight roles in the film, with Rip Torn and David Bowie making appearances.
IMDb.com users gave August 5 out of 10 stars. To give that some meaning, here are some other movies that also received 5 stars: Free Willy, I Bought a Vampire Motorcycle and My Wife and My Dead Wife. Now, Free Willy was a pretty big movie. The other two? Never heard of them, which I think leaves August's fate up in the air.
