Clooney and Placido heat up the screen in THE AMERICAN

28 Jan

THE AMERICAN is a moody, Euro-styled thriller starring George Clooney. It’s a leaner, meaner, more grizzled Clooney. The film is beautifully shot in Sweden and Italy and features nice supporting performances by Paolo Bonacelli and Violante Placido. Placido is stunning as GC’s steamy love interest, while Bonacelli’s Catholic Father offers divine guidance to Clooney’s hardened hit man character. I enjoyed it and encourage you to give it a shot. Get it? Shot???
