The Truth About Charlie

Director Jonathan Demme (Something Wild, Silence of the Lambs) remakes the Cary Grant/Audrey Hepburn classic Charade. Thandie Newton (Beloved) stars in this suspenseful, if scattershot, go-around as a woman whose husband has just been killed in Paris. Suddenly, she finds herself pursued across Europe by assorted unsavory figures who want a fortune that her husband allegedly stole. Who can she trust? Perhaps handsome stranger Mark Wahlberg (Boogie Nights)? Perhaps not. Demme makes some pretty bizarre choices here, fluctuating between dramatic thriller, romantic comedy, slapstick parody and dance-filled musical, which is more than enough to confuse some viewers. 104 minutes
