Movie Preview: The Mysteries of Pittsburgh

It wasn't my favorite of the 2008 Sundance movies I saw, but The Mysteries of Pittsburgh was still an interesting watch — and probably even more so for those who have read the Michael Chabon book on which the movie is based. Jon Foster plays the main character of Art Bechstein, a young man who passes his last Summer before entering the "real world" working at a book warehouse, meeting regularly with his dad (a shady Nick Nolte) for dinner, and sleeping with his boss, Phlox (Mena Suvari). Things get considerably more interesting, however, when Art meets the alluring Jane (Sienna Miller) and her boyfriend Cleveland (Peter Sarsgaard). Suddenly, Art's Summer goes from mundane to exhilarating.

There's no release information just yet but there is a trailer you can check out if you

The movie is getting panned, especially Sienna's performance in it.

I just bought this book. The trailer makes me want to read it, and probably see the movie too.

Being from Pittsburgh I'll probably see this, despite my loathing of Sienna Miller, which was only intensified by the Sh*ttsburgh comment.

Allyace- I forgot all about that! I knew I didn't care for her too much but couldn't remember why! Thanks for reminding me!

I'll be seeing it b/c I was born outside of Pittsburgh and just love the city. But I'm still mad at Sienna for calling it Shittsburgh.

I went to college in Pittsburgh and love that city. If its filmed there I will see it just to see the different places they filmed at.

you know, based on the cast - i think that i might have to check this one out. it doesn't seem like it'll be the #1 movie or a blockbuster but it's got potential. sounds like it's different than a lot of other movies that we've seen lately

So Mena Suvari's playing The Chick Who Gets Dumped for the Hot Chick? Ouuuuuuch.

This wasn't my favorite Michael Chabon book, but I'm sure I'll still see the movie eventually.
