Paul Thomas Anderson possesses many talents, one large one being the type of quality actors that are attracted to his unique and beautifully shot projects. Reese Witherspoon is the latest addition to his "Inherent Vice", which already boasts a spectacular ensemble including Joaquin Phoenix, Benicio Del Toro, Jena Malone, Owen Wilson and Martin Short.
Phoenix and Anderson recently worked together on the controversial "The Master", and the lovely Witherspoon won an Academy Award for portraying June Carter and partnering with Phoenix on the Johnny Cash film "Walk the Line". This new film is shaping up rather nicely indeed.
Based on the popular spy novel by Thomas Pynchon, the synopsis of the book reads as follows:
It's been a while since Doc Sportello has seen his ex- girlfriend. Suddenly she shows up with a story about a plot to kidnap a billionaire land developer whom she just happens to be in love with. It's the tail end of the psychedelic sixties in L.A., and Doc knows that "love" is another of those words going around at the moment, like "trip" or "groovy," except that this one usually leads to trouble.
