Movie: “I Love You Phillip Morris”
When: Opening Saturday at Village Square
Cast: Jim Carrey, Ewan McGregor, Leslie Mann
Directors: Glenn Ficara and John Requa
The story: A car accident triggers a major change in the life of a married cop, who embraces his homosexuality, turns to con artistry — and falls for the winsome title character while they’re fellow inmates in a Texas prison.
The buzz: “Bad Santa” screenwriters Glenn Ficara and John Requa make their directorial debut with this fact-based, stranger-than-fiction comedy-drama, which played last year’s Sundance and Cannes film festivals — and spent most of 2009 and almost all of 2010 awaiting theatrical release.
