#23 The Affair of The Necklace

Christopher Walken, Hillary Swank, Adrian Brody, and the guy that was in Brazil–in a period piece?  The guy from The Mentalist is in it, too?  Sign me up!

This is the story of a scam during the reign of Marie Antoinette.  The film is loaded with intrigue, twists and turns, and outlandish schemes, made all the more astounding by the fact that it’s based on true events.  Hillary Swank manages to make you forget that she once passed as a boy in Boys Don’t Cry, Adrian Brody doesn’t come across as a milquetoast, and Christopher Walken is delightfully creepy.  I could go into a vivid description of the movie, but what you really need to know is this:

1. Christopher Walken is in the film in a minor but important role.

2. Hillary Swank is in it.

3. It’s a story about a scam.

4. It’s a period piece.

5. The guy from The Mentalist is in it.

All in all, it’s a fun movie.
