Psychic Movie Predictions
NOVEMBER 2, 1998:
THE GOVERNESS (R)
After her father dies, Rosina (Minnie Driver), a 19th century single Sephardic Jew, has three choices: marriage, prostitution, and domestic service. She chooses the last option, although it is virtually indistinguishable from the first two.
Prediction: This is allegedly Driver's finest performance to date and she plays Rosina with panache and grace. Personally, I'd go just to check out hot up-and-comer Jonathan Rhys Meyers, before he goes supernova in the forthcoming Velvet Goldmine.
Probable Entertainment Value: B
Vampires are taking over New Mexico (I say let 'em have it) and the Vatican hires James Woods to stop them. Sheryl Lee plays their prostitute guidea modern-day Pocahontas, if you willin this John Carpenter-directed sex-drenched splatter-fest.
Prediction: Well, it probably won't suck (if you'll excuse the expression).
Probable Entertainment Value: C
