Though I am usually not all that big on sappy dramas,
especially one featuring what some ladies call a 'heart-throb', Elizabethtown
looks like it may just sum up a perfect story that can capture a good majority
of today's moviegoers. Or maybe it is just my time of the month.
Hours after a ruinous product debut, suicidal industrial
designer Drew Baylor [Orlando Bloom] learns of his father's sudden death.
As the only son, Drew must travel to their small hometown of Elizabethtown,
Kentucky to attend to his father's memorial. On the flight to Kentucky,
Drew meets Claire, a quick-witted flight attendant, who helps him navigate
the rough waters ahead and proves that amazing things happen when you least
Yes, I know we don't have that Orlando Bloom fan page up yet, but we are
working on it. It just takes a little getting use to when it comes to seeing
this actor without the bow and the bleach job. I wasn't that impressed with
a couple of his last rolls [Troy and Kingdom
of Heaven], but this drama might help Bloom to find himself
and the actor he really wants to be.
