    Their characters are supposed to be a 19 year old boy and a mid 30′s housewife that are having an affair, this is NOT a romantic comedy. This is based on a very dark and depressing book that is mainly about a boy left to take care of his three sisters after their mother is jailed for killing their father. So before you dumbasses say she’s too old for him, um it’s because she’s supposed to be.

    very interesting.. I like them both, Andrew Garfield especially.. and it’s good that Jennifer’s choosing a more meaty roles, she’s a good actress. i’ve been underwhelmed by her weak movies lately so good for them both…

  • shadows

    Jeeez cant they get a MORE attractive older woman who’lll be romanticaly linked to the goofy-looking Andrew; the likes of Charlize Theron. Rachel Weiss perhaps?!

  • Ali

    Andrew might get an Oscar Nomination for this role.Good luck!

  • Orion

    Yaay for Jennifer. She should get good roles, or do action movies. She is a good actress. Actually it is her, not Ben Affleck, who earns more money in the family.

    Orion, maybe you don’t know that Ben Affleck directed the acclaimed movie “The Town”, he is no longer made fun of but considered a serious director and actor. Jennifer, whom I like a lot, has not been in a good movie since “Juno”. She is a delightful comédienne.

    Andrew Garfield is a good actor, but not very good looking.

    another depressing family drama! Yep, totally Oscar material!

  • steff

    First of all, Andrew Garfield is an amazing actor, i’m just sayin! She might not have been my choice, nevertheless, she’s good at what she does, best in comedic roles. But this will be a welcomed change for her. I wish her the best. Read the book, its a dark, depressed drama, and Andrew Garfield will work it!!!
