  • Stewart, selected for Marylou five years ago on the basis of her striking debut in "Into the Wild," is perfect in the role, takes off her clothes more than once and nearly always seems to be breaking a sweat, which kicks the sexiness quotient up high. show more

But in Salles, screenwriter Jose Rivera and company's effort to get the details right, they only get so far. And it's not quite far enough. show more
