Julianne Moore


17 Feb, 2006

Moore plays Brenda Martin in this drama directed by Joe Roth. Martin accuses an unidentified black man of hijacking her car and kidnapping her son, leading to intense investigation of a housing project. Unfortunately for Martin, her story begins to unravel under scrutiny. Co-starring Samuel L. Jackson, Edie Falco, and Ron Eldard.

In terms of the challenges, you’re always trying to approach everything with a certain kind of empathy and compassion for what’s going on in the story. These people are in very extreme and incredibly realistic places. I mean…you see how isolated people are by poverty, and that’s one of the themes that I think is at work in this movie.
