Starring : Adrien Brody, Keira Knightley, Daniel Craig, Kris Kristofferson and Jennifer Jason Leigh

Oscar-winner Adrien Brody (THE PIANO) stars in THE JACKET, an intense psychological thriller about a Gulf War veteran who finds himself trapped inside another terrifying scenario. Shot in the head while in Iraq, Jack Starks (Brody) has returned home only to be convicted of a murder that he didn't commit. Still reeling from his wartime trauma, Jack is found not guilty by reason of insanity and is committed to an institution for the criminally insane. Once there, he is drugged by the evil Dr. Becker (Kris Kristofferson) and placed into a coffin-like drawer on a nightly basis. Inside the drawer, after being tormented with horrific war flashbacks, Jack is mysteriously transported to the future, where he forms a tender relationship with the hardened, beautiful Jackie (Keira Knightley). Aware that he is destined to die in four days, Jack must use his new gift to figure out what happened to him, with the hopes of altering the course of history. Directed by John Maybury (LOVE IS THE DEVIL), THE JACKET features another electrifying performance from Brody. Acclaimed artist Brian Eno contributes a transcendent score, which contrasts beautifully with Peter Deming's stark cinematography. As the weary Jackie, Knightley proves once again that she's more than just a pretty face.

Good find. Excellent movie this one. Heat added Edi.

HMV tracks at 10% thru Quidco tho.

Not bad, but it's only 40p cheaper than SendIt.com, and you could get it brand new on Amazon Marketplace for £2.50.

Effective price of £2.70 @ HMV with 30p Quidco...

Well yes, so still potentially cheaper at Amazon Marketplace (£2.50 is the delivered price).

But obviously not everyone likes Marketplace. But it's another option.

This film is sick!

Oh you young whippersnappers - is this sick in the 'twisted' sense or sick in the 'really good' sense?

Very good movie - don't be put off with Keira in it, very very clever film making.

I've only used Amazon Marketplace once years ago, and item never got to me, and Amazon did nothing. So really put me off.

Gonna get this. I get 10% student discount too, as well as quidco :thumbsup:

This is the sorta film my man would like. He forced me to watch "The Condemned" in bed a few days back... I then had horrid nightmares for the rest of the night! :roll: hehe. Men! ;-)

I use Amazon Marketplace for about 80% of the DVDs, CDs and books that I buy, and I'm yet to have a problem.

I'm going back YEARS tho since I tried them. But gotta admit, if you fail to receive the product on your first try, it's gonna well put you off lol.

Both, "twisted" in the sense the film is twisted, and sick in the sense the film is great. So yes good film!

Great film! Quite moving too in a strange way, almost made me cry man tears.

I've watched this, but I can't remember a single thing about it. :whistling:

]IMDB link, looks like it's worth the money

Personally I think it was a not too good film - but I guess we all have different tatstes

I watched this film based on a "recommendation" but can't say it was anything other than completely forgettable...

Gets 43% at rotten tomatoes :whistling:
