Pheonix in Reservation Road
Joaquin Pheonix is set to continue his trademark and oscar winning intense character driven performances with a role in the film adaptation of John Burnham Schwartz's novel entitled Reservation Road. The story reads like a perfect casting...
It's about a college professor whose 10-year-old son is killed in a hit-and-run accidental, who then goes on a "desperate search" for the driver of the car. In the other corner is the driver, a self-loathing, "deeply damaged man who's torn between turning himself in for the crime and saving his own hide,"
Wow, that sounds like something you would attribute to Sean Penn or Kevin Bacon, and Pheonix's name fits right in with that group these days. It would actually be great to see the other lead role taken by Penn or Bacon, we shall wait and hear.
