Ask The Dust Salma Hayek yes, but no vampires here.
Plot In the 1930s, penniless Arturo Bandini (Farrell) lodges in LA and tries to become an author, worrying that he’s too inexperienced to have anything to write about. He has a complex relationship with Camilla (Hayek), a Mexican waitress, which eventually inspires him to finish a novel. Verdict A curiously resistable drama, despite several strong elements — the most notable being newcomer Idina Menzel. Reviewed by Kim Newman
