I was noticing something about Alison Murray’s 2005 indie drama, Mouth To Mouth, and that was: what a cast. Well, sorta. Two of this year’s big breakout stars are in the film, back when they were total unknowns. Coincidence? Are we about to see a flood of Mouth To Mouth stars featured in Hollywood productions? For starters, the film starred Ellen Page, currently earning raves and awards buzz (and a Golden Globe nomination) for her title role in Juno. She’s now got it made in the shade.
It doesn’t stop there. Mouth To Mouth was also the first film gig for young actor Jim Sturgess. This year, Sturgess won acclaim (even when the film didn’t), as the male lead in Julie Taymor’s Across the Universe. Sturgess now has a full dance card, with leading roles in Hollywood productions such as 21, Crossing Over, and The Other Boleyn Girl. So, who’s next from Mouth To Mouth?
