What is the story with McAdams and Ford’s “Morning Glory?”
By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: So far, Roger Michell’s “Morning Glory” looks like the kind of movie you can bring your parents to over Thanksgiving break.
Michell previously helmed safe, palpable fare like “Notting Hill” and “Venus” (yet showed some edge with “Enduring Love” and “Changing Lanes”). It has Harrison Ford, whom dad likes, and Diane Keaton, whom mom likes. And it was penned by “The Devil Wears Prada” scripter Aline Brosh McKenna, who trades the fashion industry for daytime television and swaps Anne Hathaway with Rachel McAdams. Everybody’s happy.
Yet one commentator, Jeff Wells, weighs in ahead of embargo to say Michell’s film is “a tiny bit better” than expected, and even lobs Ford toward the Supporting Actor category.
Is this possible? Will a dark horse enter the Oscar race?
We’ll have to wait until Nov. 12 to catch “Morning” in all of its “Glory.” But this afternoon, a “Making of” reel focusing on the film’s assorted characters has made its way to Yahoo Movies, so have a peek and decide for yourself.
