Description

Based on Christopher Buckley's acclaimed 1994 novel of the same title and adapted for the screen by Jason Reitman, Thank You for Smoking is a fiercely satirical look at today's culture of spin! Aaron Eckhart stars as Nick Naylor, a sexy, charismatic spin-doctor for Big Tobacco who'll fight to protect America's right to smoke - even if it kills him. When he incurs the wrath of a senator (William H. Macy) bent on snuffing out cigarettes, Nick's powers of "filtering the truth" will be put to the test. With a smokin' all-star cast that includes Rob Lowe, Maria Bello, Katie Holmes, Adam Brody and Robert Duvall, this hilarious comedy will prove seriously addictive!

    I've loved this film since I first saw it about 4 years ago. A great ensemble cast, snappy writing, Sam Elliot as "Not the Marlboro man at all" and Maria Bello being superb in what is tecnically a background role. I think that you will enjoy this film but it has become different for me. As someone who recently lost his father to small cell lung cancer it now has a far deeper meaning. The WHO figures state that the current global death toll from tobacco is 5.4 million so to me this is a scathing look at an industry that directly creates death on a massive scale. The only person who isn't unpleasant is Cameron Bright who eventually sees through his fathers self imposed veneer of social acceptability and reveals the mechanisms beneath. Even Macy is deeply unsympathetic as a senator out to make a name for himself on the back of human tragedy. A great and underappreciated film.

    This film just hasn't had the exposure that one might expect having seen it. Great fun, and thought provoking in its own way, a must have in any film collection and at £3.99 it's a bargain!
