Laurel Canyon is one of the films I have on my iPod.
Here is the trailer. And yes, it's definitely worth a look.
1) Informed script, especially if you are a lit person. This is one of the better depictions of gender and gendered discourse on the screen.
2) Alessandro Nivola, an unappreciated yet fantastic actor.
3) Frances McDormand who does not need an introduction.
It's a great film to watch on a big screen or on the iPod mini-screen when traveling.
