”The theme of the movie is ‘The grass is greener on the other side, until you get there,”’ says Josh Brolin, who plays one of several restless spouses in Woody Allen’s London-set dramedy. Brolin is a struggling author who flirts with his new neighbor (Slumdog Millionaire‘s Freida Pinto) when he’s not bickering with his wife (Naomi Watts). The wife has a crush on her boss (Antonio Banderas), while her dad (Anthony Hopkins) shacks up with a call girl (Lucy Punch). The film is Brolin’s second with Allen. ”I got this e-mail from Woody that said, ‘You may remember me from Melinda and Melinda; I was the director. I thought you did a great job in W.,”’ says Brolin. ”I framed it. ‘You may remember me’!”
