The Other Man is directed by Notes on a Scandal's Richard Eyre, and it seems to feature that movie's same ominous and disturbing tone. I like that the cast includes some of my favorite actors: Laura Linney, Liam Neeson and Antonio Banderas, along with Atonement's Romola Garai. But what I like most about the trailer for this film is that I don't feel as though I've seen the entire movie in the preview. The suspenseful aspect of this movie may still be intact when I go to watch it.
Neeson plays Peter, a man who becomes obsessed with tracking down the man (Banderas) who is having an affair with his wife (Linney). It sounds basic enough and perhaps it is, but the trailer makes it seem like there might be something more to this thriller/mystery. The Other Man will apparently have a limited release in the US starting Sept. 25. To check out the preview, read more.
