I hate films with super-long titles. It makes it that much harder to write about. Speaking of long titles, Brad Pitt and Natalie Portman will co-star in Paramount Pictures adaptation of, wait for it, Important Artifacts and Personal Property from the Collection of Lenore Doolan and Harold Morris, Including Books, Street Fashion, and Jewelry.
While we like to assume that the title will get shortened, Pitt also starred in The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford; so maybe not.
Natalie Portman, Brad Pitt for Artifacts and the Long Title
Written by Leanne Shapton, Important Artifacts and Personal Property from the Collection of Lenore Doolan and Harold Morris, Including Books, Street Fashion, and Jewelry takes the form of Sotheby's-like estate auction catalog, with 325 entries and photographs depicting items that reveal the private moments and the rise and fall of a four-year relationship between the fictitious couple Hal Morris (a 40ish photographer) and Lenore Doolan, (a New York Times food columnist in her late 20s).
Falling under the genre of romantic comedy, Pitt will play Morris while Portman takes on the role of Doolan.
