The Mysteries Of Pittsburgh Trailer
Sienna Miller's bizarre love triangle

12 March 2009  |  Written by Phil de Semlyen

Hot on the heels of Watchmen comes another book adaption 20 years in the making, Michael Chabon's The Mysteries Of Pittsburgh.

While unlikely to generate anything on the scale of Watchmania, Chabon's debut novel is well-loved, and fans will be reassured by Rawson Marshall Thurber's near-reverential adaptation. Thurber, the man who brought us the mighty Wight Goodman as writer/director of Dodgeball, also directs.

The trailer looks promising enough, with Sienna Miller pitched back into love triangle territory after her turn as one of Dylan Thomas' paramours in The Edge Of Love. Miller plays glamorous dilettante Jane Bellwether, who along with small-time hood Cleveland Arning (the ever-excellent Peter Sarsgaard) and college graduate Art Bechstein (Jon Foster) wiles away a hot Pennsylvanian summer in Chabon's coming-of-age tale.

With a growly Nick Nolte turn, Mena Suvari, and Sienna Miller in a bikini, what's not to like? Click here to view the trailer.

The Mysteries Of Shittsburgh Pittsburgh is out later in 2009.

Near-Reverential Adaptation?
Have you not read Michael Chabon's book? This so-called adaptation by RMT is NOTHING like it! Except for the title and most of the character names, none of the events in this film resemble the ones laid out by Chabon. Why did RMT bother to spend time and $$ making this film? No fan of the novel wants to see Art Bechstein getting it on with Jane and esp. NOT with Cleveland! And MOP without Arthur Lecomte is just plain ridiculous... Without Arthur, Art would never even meet Jane or Cleveland! More

What's not to like?
Is that Thurber chucked most of the novel in the trash in favor of making a Sundance approved clunker than even clunked at Sundance. Please, stop sucking up to talentless directors making crap out of great books. More
