Watch Robert Pattinson in the New Bel Ami Trailer: Dandylicious Liaisons
Robert Pattinson dons dandy tails, a dandy hat, dandy mannerisms, and dandy unintentional hilarity in the new trailer for Declan Donnellan and Nick Ormerod's adaptation of Guy de Maupassant's Bel Ami. Yay. He also quivers like Daniel Plainview in one shot, and before he can yell, "I've abandoned my child!" like a sessy vampire, you'll have visions of Dangerous Liaisons as you watch Uma Thurman wear period costuming.
"HIS CHARM WILL OPEN DOORS." OK, Jay Gatsby. Take me back to the West Egg where the trashy, less insufferably rich live. As expected, Christina Ricci lends credibility and her unbelievable screen presence (seriously) to the movie, and that helps compensate for the unfortunate fact that Bel Ami is not a biopic of Bill Bellamy. What if Rob Pattinson starred in Bellamy? Taylor Lautner could play Russell Simmons.
VERDICT: Not so fine, not so dandy.
