"Informer" to Make Sundance Dance to an 80s Beat!
"The Informer," director Gregor Jordan's (Buffalo Soldiers) new picture set around early 1980s Los Angeles and based on a book of short stories by Bret Easton Ellis (Less Than Zero, American Psycho) makes its Sundance Film Festival debut on Thursday. The sexually supercharged movie stars a mostly unclad Amanda Heard, Mickey Rourke, not entirely unfamiliar with the excesses of the era and Kim Bassinger, Rourke's co-star from the classic '80s erotic thriller 9 1/2 Weeks. Billy Bob Thornton and Winona Ryder are also on board, as was Brad Renfro in his final performance before his untimely overdose at the age of 25. The New York Times has more.
