Re: Macbeth

But everyone else is going to have a Scottish accent, seems distracting to me and will just be a constant reminder she could not pull off the accent while watching the film.

Re: Knight of Cups (2013)

I know someone who worked on the Austin film who told me the same thing about how much Bale worked out there. I'm hoping both might be released next year.
