Forty Shades of Blue [DVD] 68779780029 Movies "It's just a moment in time that happened in Memphis that was pure magic...and I'm just so thankful that I was a part of it." So says legendary record producer Alan James (Academy Award nominee Rip Torn) of his heyday as a hitmaker in the city of soul. Those days have faded into the past, but the larger-than-life songsmith still continues to reap the benefits, including his Russian trophy-girlfriend, Laura (Independent Spirit Award nominee Dina Korzun), a beautiful young woman he brought home with him from a trip to Moscow. Laura's life is better than anything she's ever known, but Alan's carousing lifestyle tests her patience. When Michael (Darren Burrows, TV's Northern Exposure), the handsome, estranged son of one of Alan's previous marriages, arrives for a party celebrating the old man, the delicate balance of this intriguing relationship changes forever. Winner of the 2005 Sundance Film Festival, this second feature from director Ira Sachs (The Delta) has garnered accolades from America's top critics for the emotional depth of its story, the subtlety and astounding range of its actors' performances, and an amazing soundtrack featuring hits of classic soul by songwriter Bert Berns and an original score by Tindersticks' Dickon Hinchliffe. See the film that Salon describes as "What American film once was, and could be again.
