GREENLIGHT #92: Babel (with "The Man Who Knew Too Much" and "A River Runs Through It")

Ann and Les could go on and on about Babel (2006.) They think this is a movie that delights the eyes while stimulating the mind and that makes them happy. It's an ensemble piece with the two biggest stars being Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett who both give wonderful performances - one very emotional and one, well, almost comatose. And they were thrilled to see some fantastic performances from newcomers Rinko Kikuchi and Adriana Barraza. For their GREENLIGHT Rentals, Les recommends another film about a family in trouble in Morocco (that old theme again!) called The Man Who Knew Too Much (1956.) It stars James Stewart and Doris Day as innocent witnesses to political intrigue. It was directed by Alfred Hitchcock and is suspenseful and charming at the same time. Ann recommends a simpler movie about a family trying to avoid trouble. It's a very quiet and peaceful movie directed by Robert Redford and starring Tom Skerritt as the fisherman preacher father to his two sons played by Mr. Pitt and Craig Sheffer. The film is called A River Runs Through It (1992.)
