From The Booth
Julianne Moore and Ken Watanabe star in this adaptation of Ann Patchett's bestselling novel. Mr Katsumi (Watanabe), an opera-loving businessman has sponsored the renowned singer Roxane (Ms Moore) to perform for the President of an unnamed South American country. Armed insurgents storm the building, taking everyone hostage, and a prolonged standoff between rebels and the government forces ensue. Friendships, and even romance, develop within the closed confines as negotiations drag on. Ms Moore's portrait of an operatic diva is aided by the voice of Renée Fleming. In English with some Spanish, French and Japanese, with subtitles.
