Mulholland Falls - Hot Jennifer Connelly to the Rescue
Jennifer Connelly went through a phase in the 1990s when nothing would stop her. A former child star, Jennifer Connelly was determined to do whatever it took to succeed as an actress, and her plan worked. Among the items on her list that she ticked off was acting nude and topless, which she did in (along with one or two other films) "The Hot Spot," "Inventing the Abbotts," "Career Opportunities" and this film, "Mulholland Falls" (1996), directed by Lee Tamahori from a script and story by Pete Dexter and Floyd Mutrux. Is it worth picking up this fairly pedestrian crime melodrama set in the early 1950s just to catch about 30 seconds of Jennifer Connelly doing her thing? Only you can say that. "Mulholland Falls" is, though, a good trip back into the 1950s, the conservative decade which is the usual setting (see "Mischief," for instance) for actresses looking to bare a little skin in the most innocent-seeming environment where that reasonably could happen.
