Steve Carell always seems to have the right mix of comedy and drama recently. Not too serious but not too sappy.
Well it seems he found himself another movie where he'll get to make us laugh/cry.
Dogs Of Babel his newest film, is based off of a Carolyn Parkhurst novel.
Parkhurst's website has an official book synopsis:
"When his wife dies in a fall from a tree in their backyard, linguist Paul Iverson is wild with despair. In the days that follow, Paul becomes certain that Lexy's death was no accident. Strange clues have been left behind: unique, personal messages that only she could have left and that he is determined to decipher.
So begins Paul's fantastic and perilous search for the truth, as he abandons his every-day life to embark on a series of experiments designed to teach his dog Lorelei to communicate.
Is this the project of a madman? Or does Lorelei really have something to tell him about the last afternoon of a woman he only thought he knew? At the same time, Paul obsessively recalls the early days of his love for Lexy and the ups and downs of life with the brilliant, sometimes unsettling woman who became his wife."
So basically, it will be Steve Carell teaching a dog how to talk.
We'd sit down and watch that for two hours.
