'ANDORRA' THRILLER CASTS
 TONI COLLETTE & CLIVE OWEN
Cast is shaping up for the movie adaptation of Peter Cameron's novel ANDORRA with Toni Collette, Gillian Anderson and Joanna Lumley joining Clive Owen! He plays Alexander Fox, a bookseller who leaves the U.S. after a personal tragedy to begin a new life in the tiny country of ANDORRA. He quickly becomes entangled with the ever present locals. Toni Collette is Mrs Dent, an Australian with a large dog and a volatile secret. Joanna Lumley is Mrs Quay, the kayaking matriarch of an Andorran dynasty who seems to recall Fox from long ago. He finds comfort in the company of her daughter, Miss Quay (Gillian Anderson), as the mystery of his origin deepens. When a woman’s body is found soon after Fox’s arrival, the local lieutenant becomes strangely convinced that he is responsible. With his past threatening to envelop his newfound paradise, Fox finds himself in a crisis of conscience and identity, in a foreign country from which he may never  escape.

  5. While The Son sounds good I'm tired of television trying to show independent females by making it look like having children or getting married makes a woman weak somehow. I've done neither but respect the decision. Which I wouldn't be around if my parents had done neither. Anyway, Andorra has my attention. I like the plot.

    1. yes, that is the thing in feminism, when they think being female (in a usual meaning) is wrong and ladies need to become men.

  6. Oh, how I'd love to escape to a tiny country and live out my life in peace and quiet. Minus the dead bodies, of course ;)ANDORRA sounds good.
