Film Scouts on the Riviera 2000

Nurse Betty

Film Scouts on the Riviera 2000 is presented by:

"Caught In The Web" Inter(net)view, RealVideo:
Neil LaBute at the 2000 Cannes Film Festival as 28k RealVideo, 56k RealVideo, or 100k RealVideo.

The always audacious Neil Labute's third directorial effort, "Nurse Betty" tells the story of a woman who dreams of one day meeting the soap-opera doctor she pines for (played by Greg Kinner). When her husband (Aaron Eckhart) is killed during a drug deal gone awry, Betty flees her life and heads to Los Angeles in hopes that she can meet her much-beloved soap star and that he will fall in love with her. Things are not as simple as they seem, however, as the men who killed her husband (played by Chris Rock and Morgan Freeman) are in close pursuit.
