What's Old Is New Again
Do you remember the 1972 movie, Sleuth? It's a mystery-thriller that was essentially a two-character film starring Laurence Olivier and Michael Caine, both of whom were nominated for the Best Actor Oscar. Now I see that it's been remade, with the new Sleuth starring Michael Caine and Jude Law. However, it seems very likely that Caine is now performing the Olivier role in the new version. Interesting, two movies and one actor fills both major roles. The latest edition of Sleuth opens in theatres in October, but it's one of the more notable movies screening at the Toronto Int'l Film Festival, which opens this week and runs through Saturday, September 15.
