WILL AMERICA EMBRACE JIM CARREY AND EWAN MCGREGOR IN LOVE IN “I LOVE YOU PHILLIP MORRIS?
It looks like American film distributors are still squeamish about gay sex scenes because “I Love You Phillip Morris” starring Ewan McGregor and Jim Carrey has been languishing on the shelf for a year after the film showed at Sundance and the Cannes Film Festival in 2009. The movie is based on a true story about a con man (Carrey) who keeps busting out of jail in creative ways to be with the love of his life (Ewan.) The movie was released in Europe and did reasonably well, but American distributors balked at the love scenes. The off-beat romance finally found a courageous distributor –Roadside Attractions- and it’s set to be released in December.
