Spacey in a Musical "A Beautiful Mind" Meme
My husband picked up "Beyond the Sea" by Kevin Spacey this afternoon, feeling a need for passive recreation. He knows I seldom like movies, but when he heard the swing sound of Frank Sinatra from the movie he immediately ran to get me. Not surprisingly given my love for Sinatra, I enjoyed the movie, with only one downside: why did Spacey fall into an act reminiscent of Russell Crowe's in "A Beautiful Mind"? Spacey's singing and dancing stood out by themselves and the psycho-drama side of the script robbed a chunk of "Beyond the Sea" magic.
