Movie Preview: Salma Hayek in Lonely Hearts


Salma Hayek's new movie, Lonely Hearts, really snuck up on me: It debuted at last year's Tribeca Film Festival, and it's now rolling out in limited release.

Based on a true story, the movie follows the killing spree of Martha Beck (Salma Hayek) and Raymond Fernandez (Jared Leto), who target single women discovered through the "lonely hearts" personal ads. John Travolta plays the detective, Elmer Robinson (John Travolta), who becomes obsessed with catching them, while James Gandolfini of "The Sopranos" plays his partner in crime-fighting.

The well-known story has provided fodder for several films, including the 1970 movie The Honeymoon Killers, but this time, there's an interesting twist: Director Todd Robinson is actually the grandson of the real detective on the case. Leto and Hayek seemed like a strange pairing, until I saw the trailer for what looks like a fun film. You can watch the trailer when you read more
