The Ghost Writer Trailer

Here's the international trailer for Roman Polanski's new film, The Ghost Writer:

It looks really, really good. I don't know if I want to watch a movie made by a director who is arrogantly flouting justice living in splendid exile in Europe, while, at the same time, claiming to be exempt from the law because he is an artiste.

And it's not like he is being falsely accused, he readily admits to raping a young girl after plying her with drugs and alcohol. That the victim no longer wants to press charges is immaterial. It's not about her any more, but the rule of law.

Personally, I don't like it. Too much blue and not enough verdant green and red of the national flag.
