The deceptive thriller that unfolds through a cracked prism of hypnotic suggestion begins with a purloined painting and leads to a tortured triangle between its main characters: James Mc Avoy's cocky art auctioneer, who suffers from amnesia; Rosario Dawson's therapist, who tries to restore his memory; and Vincent Cassel's savage gangster, who wants him to remember where a priceless Goya is stashed.Nice Guy post-Olympics VIDEO: Trance cast hypnotized by Danny Boyle"I saw my daughter last night who lives here," the 56-year-old British filmmaker says of his youngest child, Caitlin, as he enjoys a fruit platter at The Crosby Hotel, a high-end Blighty hideaway in Soho.
The nation feel just a bit more in love with Danny Boyle after that spectacular Olympics’ Opening Ceremony and we reckon his new girlfriend Rosario Dawson must have done too, talk about proud OH!
We also love that Danny Boyle has a very cool and super hot Hollywood girlfriend, 2012 is looking like a good year for Mr Boyle.
Although we hear that Rosario has no plans to move to London to be closer to her boyfriend Danny Boyle just yet, we’d happily have her as an adopted Brit.
The stunning actress has been dating the director for several weeks after meeting him on the set of his new film ‘Trance’, which he has been shooting in Britain.
But she isn’t planning on staying in the UK capital permanently and will be happy to have a long distance relationship with the filmmaker, who is based in the city, from her home in Los Angeles.
Rosario – who, at 33, is 22 years younger than 55-year-old Danny – said: “I’m back and forth splitting my time between England and LA. I go to a lot of conventions, as I have a voting organisation set up called Voto Latino, which is eight years old, and so that is my main priority at the moment.” The screen star is very involved in the upcoming US election – in which President Barack Obama is bidding to win a second term – and she insists her political interests will take priority over her acting career for the next few months.Speaking to the Daily Telegraph newspaper at the London West End opening of the Royal Shakespeare Company’s production of ‘Julius Caesar’, she said: “I still act as well as doing the political stuff, but, on election year, I tend to focus on that …soundtrack and had everyone hopping to the Oscar-winning ditty Jai Ho at the end of Slumdog Millionaire didn't miss a beat while spinning CDs in an Austin club at the South by Southwest festival a few weeks ago. REVIEW: Danny Boyle's Trance could put you into one MORE: No more Mr."I would never perform as a professional, but it was nice to do as a one-off."While the old (Michael Jackson, David Bowie) and the new (Wretch 32, The Maccabees) made the playlist cut, Boyle also included his personal favorite circa 1978, one that bespeaks of his own past."It's a not-very-well-known Clash song, (White Man) In Hammersmith Palais, a single that meant a great deal to me, " he says. A reggae rock song, a beautiful song."That Boyle would wax nostalgic about a punk anthem reveals much about his place in the cinematic universe as a sort of elder outlaw who keeps himself pure by eschewing big-budget vehicles, remains suspect of 3-D and retains a refined populist sensibility while pushing traditional genres to new extremes. I really admire some of the filmmakers who make them, because I know what is involved. I don't know anything about them."This son of working-class Irish immigrants who spent his childhood in Manchester wanting to become a priest concedes that he never acquired a taste for geek culture growing up. So my favorite movie from that era is Apocalypse Now, which is much more disturbing.While he has seen fellow countrymen such as Sam Mendes (Skyfall) and Christopher Nolan (the latest Batman franchise) move from art-house fare to box-office behemoths, Boyle has been averse to any such potential sellout opportunities, ever since he turned down Alien 4 in the wake of Trainspotting's success Asked if studios still offer him such projects, including any superhero adventures, Boyle admits, "They don't bother much anymore. He goes right to the crux of the problem."When Star Wars came out, I didn't see it," Boyle explains. I know all these people, and they talk to me about comic books, and I just go blank."It was at the time when punk had just begun in Britain. They expect you to be one of the clan that loves Star Wars, and I wasn't of the clan."The punk wannabe who sported a spiky haircut well into middle age is fully capable his own version of anarchy in the United Kingdom, as Trance — his first film shot in London since 2002's pseudo-zombie thriller 28 Days Later — duly shows.
