3.0 out of 5 stars "We Are Immortal Til Our Work Is Done", April 29, 2006
This review is from: Speakeasy (DVD)
David Strathairn (Good Night and Good Luck, Blue Car) plays Bruce who has a job as a magician. His wife Sophie, played by Stacy Edwards (Houdini, In The Company Of Men) has a deaf father, Mr. Prappas, played by Arthur Hiller (Roswell, Beverly Hills Cop 3) who Strathairn is taking care of because Edwards doesnt want to. Strathairn gets into a car accident involving Frank, played by the brilliant Nicky Katt (Boston Public, Boiler Room) and they become friends. Strathairn even finds out that Katt's daughter is deaf just like his step-father and he also meets Katt's wife Sara played by the lovely Lake Bell (Surface, I Love Your Work). Meanwhile, Edwards is spending time with Dr. Addams, played by Christopher McDonald (The Perfect Storm, Terminal Velocity) who used to go to High School with her. Filled with great performances especially by Strathairn, Edwards and Katt. Too bad this didnt get theater release, I would of liked to see Strathairn get nominated for Best Actor, Edwards for Best Actress and Katt for Best Supporting Actor....their all fantastic. McDonald does a superb job as well. Speakeasy is a wonderful little film that I recommened highly. Also starring Michael Bacall (Urband Legends: The Final Cut, Undertow), Julianne Nicholson (Seeing Other People, Ally McBeel) and Gage Stevens (The Vest).
