The Hong Kong director Wong Kar-Wai’s first English-language film hopes to do for Norah Jones what Ang Lee could not with Jewel (in 1999’s largely ignored Ride With the Devil): turn a demure singer into a serious actress. Jones stars as a waitress on a road trip that leads to adventures with a bad girl (Natalie Portman) in Nevada, while Jude Law plays a cafe owner whose berry pie gives the film its fruity title.
