My brother sent me the trailer for 'Downloading Nancy' because he thought it would be a film I'd want to check out. He was definitely right. 'Downloading Nancy' stars Maria Bello in an Independent Spirit Award nominated performance as Nancy, a numb, unhappy housewife that leaves her husband and seeks solace in the arms of another man. Sounds like a typical melodramatic storyline except for the fact that Nancy's idea of solace is only derived from suffering, physical pain, humiliation and ultimately death. Variety called the film a "forbidding and morbid piece of psycho-sadomasochism" with a "swimming-in-the-deep-end performance by Maria Bello that is the definition of fearless." Looks good. I can't wait for the dvd release!
