Angie Gears Up to Release Her Mighty Heart

Angelina may play the role of mother to four young children and partner to Brad Pitt around here most of the time, but this summer we're going to get to see her playing a slightly different part -- Mariane Pearl, widow of slain American journalist Daniel Pearl. Angelina and Brad are set to debut the film, A Mighty Heart, at the extra star-studded Cannes Film Festival this summer (where Brad's Ocean's 13 will also premiere), but before then EW got a little peek into what it was like making this heavy film. Here are highlights:

  • On the school children paparazzi incident: "I'll say this,'' Jolie offers. ''We were in a school we were legally allowed to be in. We had permits for exactly what we were doing. And the paparazzi tried to get into the school when we were at the gate, and the parents showed up to get their kids. And the paparazzi rushed through the gates and caused chaos. It was not the film production that caused chaos. We were only guilty of bringing the paparazzi.''
  • Her costar on working with uber-famous Jolie: ''It would usually take about five minutes before people would figure out that it was Angelina,'' says Futterman. ''So we ended up shooting a lot of the exterior stuff in five-minute increments.''

And just think, that's when Angie is in costume. With all the buzz this movie is already getting, it'll be interesting to see if Angelina the megastar and controversial tabloid figure can take on such an intense role. Something tells me her and Brad's little ones aren't going to be seeing this one anytime soon.

Not sure about this movie. It seems to me they could have actually gotten someone closer to Marianne Pearl's actual physical looks to play this role, but if she likes AJ dressing darkening her skin and wearing wigs, it's fine by me. The only way I see this movie not being a flop is if some people consider this modern-day black face and cause a ruckus (Read: Jesse Jackson or Al Sharpton)... I will pass on this one either way.

Marriane Peal 100% approved of Angie in this role so if she is happy about, why should anyone else care? It is MP's story after all...

I predict medicre reviews for this movie and lackluster box office returns. I watched the real story unfold on TV so I don't need to see a dramatization of it. ******************************************** Toto, I have a feeling we're not in America anymore :(

It will be interesting to see how this movie does with the general public, especially considering the publicity and rumour that surrounds it. My opinion is that it will never make as much money as the regular blockbusters, but from what I understand, it doesn't try to be a blockbuster. I don't think it hurts to see these kinds of films made regardless of who plays the major roles. These are stories that need to be told and it doesn't hurt the general public to hear them regardless of their opinion of the actor/actress in the lead roles. Take a step back from the gossip and hear their stories.

But isn't it more important that her performance does Marianne Pearl justice? Ava Gardner wasn't black, but she still gave a stellar performance on "Showboat". It's not like she's dressing up like and old Black & White Minstrel. And from what it seems, Marianne Pearl wasn't simply bi-racial, but tri-racial. And she's French - at least Angelina is half-French and fluent in the language. It would be embarrassing to listen to Halle Berry putting on a French accent. If MP is happy enough with AJ's playing her, then who are we to complain?

I dislike that she is trying to play the role of a different race, and it is somewhat insulting. It is the same as a black woman being made up as a white woman. There would be all kinds of controversy over that if it were to happen.

Well, it's not exactly the type of movie that becomes a box-office hit, but if it's good it might at least get some cool reviews. Anyway, general opinion, opinion of the critics, same shit. I'm totally going to see this movie no matter what. :D
