New Trade Secrets Movie Starring Julia Roberts


Well sorta. According to film reviewer Steven Rea in the Philadelphia Inquirer, the new movie Duplicity concerns "corporate espionage - the pinching of trade secrets and lucrative new formulae." Rea, it seems, misses the days when espionage in movies meant menacing codes, nuclear weapons, and deadly toxins.

Now, the protagonists -- Julia's character and Clive Owen's -- work for companies "like Proctor & Gamble - conglomerate purveyors of toothpastes and laxatives, ointments and oils."

Okay, it may be boring for Rea, but it's not every day that the subject of this blog is also the subject of a blockbuster Hollywood movie. Let's hope it has a good opening weekend.
